A Davis County couple was injured when they crashed their motorcycle in East Canyon Sunday night as they swerved to miss a small animal.

A woman, 35, was flown to a hospital in critical condition, and the driver, a 42-year-old man, is in serious condition with leg injuries, said Salt Lake County Sheriff's Lt. John Fassett.

The swerving bike struck a delineator pole and tipped on its side before sliding into brush and trees, Fassett said.

Following the crash, the man was able to crawl up to the road, where he flagged down help, Fassett said. Several drivers stopped to give the couple first aid.

Neither rider was wearing a helmet, Fassett said.
