SWITZERLAND CO., IN (FOX19) -

Indiana State Police have identified the Monticello, IN motorcyclist who died after crashing into a deer and car Tuesday afternoon.

The crash happened on State Route 156 near Concord Road at around 1 p.m. in Switzerland County.

Sgt. Stephen Wheeles says a Harley Davidson, operated by 60-year-old Steven Adams, was traveling eastbound on State Road 156 when a deer ran into the path of the motorcycle. 

The motorcycle struck the deer, causing Adams' passenger, 50-year-old Deborah Block, to be thrown from the bike. 

Wheeles says Adams and the motorcycle then crossed into the westbound lanes of State Road 156 and struck a Chevrolet Equinox.

Adams was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Switzerland County Coroner. 

Bloch, of Monticello, was flown to University of Cincinnati Hospital with serious injuries. 

The driver of the Chevy Equinox was uninjured in the collision. 

Neither Adams nor Bloch were wearing helmets, investigators said.

Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be factors in the crash.

The crash investigation is ongoing at this time.
