A Columbia man suffered serious injuries after hitting a deputy's vehicle and being thrown from his motorcycle near Kingdom City. 

Terry Shipley, 35, was driving west on Interstate 70 near mile marker 148.6 about 4:30 p.m. Sunday, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report.

Shipley was passing other vehicles on the right shoulder of the roadway in his Yamaha motorcycle. A Callaway County deputy entered the left lane and turned on his lights and sirens.

Shipley then veered to the left to avoid another vehicle and struck the front right corner of the deputy's SUV. The motorcycle then traveled off the right side of the interstate and struck two trees.

An ambulance took Shipley to University Hospital. He was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
