Route 50 was shut down in Taylor County on Monday evening after two motorcycles crashed, injuring one man.

Harrison County 911 said it happened around 7:45 p.m. at the Ivandale Straight of Route 50, near Grafton.

The Grafton Fire Department said two men were each driving separate motorcycles when a deer ran out in front of the first one. The first driver swerved to avoid hitting the deer and flipped over.

The second driver crashed to avoid hitting the other driver, according to the fire department. He was not taken to the hospital from the scene, but officials believe he drove himself to United Hospital Center in Bridgeport.

Taylor County EMS took the driver of the first motorcycle to Ruby Memorial Hospital. His name and extent of injuries are unknown at this time.

The Taylor County Sheriff's Department is investigating. State police also responded to the scene.
