What a tragedy. But it amazes me how stupid people are when it comes to deer in the road. Yes I have hit one. Sure a lot better to plow the deer than a tree or a house!
Like that onstar commercial where it shows the woman swerving off the road into a tree to miss a deer. Dumb
Deer are one of my biggest hazards riding to work. Have almost got 2 now with the bike. Not good.
It is tragic and likely that it could have easily been avoided. My first thought was of how many people have been telling me how riding a bike was dangerous. I usually reply with some off hand comment about stepping off a curb and getting hit by a bus. This poor guy was just sitting down in his house to watch some television. Makes me think twice about the amount of risk I am willing to accept. Maybe skydiving really isn't much more dangerous than chewing bubble gum ya know?
