A man that was riding his motorcycle has died following a collision with a deer. The man was from Rhinelander and was only 44 years-old. A passenger was riding with the man on the motorcycle and was taken to a hospital to be treated for his injuries.
These types of accident are not uncommon. When hitting a deer at high speeds, the impact can be very significant since the animals can weigh over a hundred pounds. When traveling in areas with a large deer population, be careful to observe for any signs that indicate deer in the area.
