TONKAWA — Authorities say a motorcyclist is in critical condition after he crashed into a cow early Sunday morning.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 60-year-old Kenneth Tucker was driving on U.S. 60 in Kay County when he encountered about five or six cows on the roadway. Authorities say Tucker struck a 700-pound heifer and was ejected off his motorcycle, slid onto the roadway and landed under a guardrail.

Tucker was taken to a Tulsa hospital where he was in critical condition. Authorities say he suffered head and arm injuries as well as internal injuries.
