A single vehicle motorcycle accident claimed the life of a 27-year-old man early Saturday morning in Florence. 

Florence police said Jonathan Fogle of Erlanger was riding his 2003 Harley Davidson motorcycle southbound in the right lane on Houston Road between Ted Bushelman Boulevard and Kiley Place at the time of the accident. 

According to witnesses, a deer ran across the roadway causing Fogle to swerve in order to avoid a collision. 

He then reportedly struck the curb and was thrown from the motorcycle.

Fogle was transported to St. Elizabeth Florence where he was pronounced deceased.
