Motorcyclist faces charges after colliding with deer


OGDENSBURG — A city man has been arrested after colliding with a deer on his motorcycle in St. Lawrence County earlier this month.

Kevin C. Guilbert, 39, was charged by state police with driving while ability impaired by drugs, a misdemeanor, and first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a felony, following an investigation into an Aug. 10 crash in the town of Oswegatchie.

Mr. Guilbert is alleged to have been riding a motorcycle at about 5:28 p.m. that day on Monkey Hill Road when he struck a deer in the road and was ejected from the motorcycle. Police said Mr. Guilbert had a broken hand and multiple abrasions and lacerations as a result of the crash and was taken to Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center.

He was arraigned in Morristown Town Court and released on appearance tickets for Oswegatchie Town Court.

A St. Lawrence County Court sentence for Mr. Guilbert is pending for an unrelated felony matter, police said.
