A serious motorcycle accident this morning on Route 33 in the Town of Batavia.

The operator, 23-year-old Brandon Scott of Darien, was taken by Mercy Flight to ECMC.

The Sheriff’s Office is still investigating the accident but says it appears a deer entered the roadway and collided with the motorcycle.

“The motorcycle itself appeared to be damaged pretty badly on the front end,” Don Newton of the Town of Batavia Fire Department said. “He was found in the middle of the road by a passerby. (Scott) was very lucky (the passerby) was actually able to stop without hitting him.”

The accident happened at 4:45 this morning between Wortendyke and Upton Roads.

Scott is in the Intensive Care Unit at ECMC in critical condition.
