HANCOCK - A motorcyclist was injured in a crash Sunday afternoon on Md. 144 in Hancock.

Hancock Rescue Squad Inc. Medic Deanna Glaze said the crash occurred about a half mile west of Rice Road about 4:30 p.m. The motorcyclist, a man in his 20s, was injured in the single-vehicle crash, and flown by helicopter to Washington County Hospital, she said.

"We think he swerved to avoid hitting a deer," Glaze said.

The man was in stable condition while being treated at the scene.

Maryland State Police had no additional information Sunday evening.
