Deer Leaps Onto Utah Highway, Lands On Top of Moving Motorcycle

A motorcycle rider in Utah was injured Tuesday morning in a freak accident--a doe dashed into morning rush hour traffic and jumped on top of his bike.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports the incident occurred around 7:30 a.m. and knocked the rider off, mortally wounded the deer, and significantly damaged the motorcycle.

Police don't know how fast the man was travelling, but the collision sent the 19-year-old rider on a 100-yard slide. The bike reportedly continued to slide on the road for another few hundred yards. Fortunately, protective gear prevented any serious injuries, and the rider only got some road rash, and a crazy story about how his bike was trashed.
