Article Recalls Motorcycle Collision With A Deer In Southern Illinois

Yesterday the Olney Daily Mail had an article titled “Shryocks tell tale” that details a motorcycle accident and subsequent recovery of Scot and Dalla Shryock.  The accident happened in Southern Illinois on July 15 at approximately 2:00 p.m.  in which they hit a deer.

As recalled by Dalla Shryock in the article with regard to the deer’s actions leading to the accident:

“I saw a brown spot,” Dalla said.  “It just jumped out in front of us.”

The rest of the article discusses the accident and the couple’s recovery efforts from the injuries they sustained during the collision with the deer.

Those who have had encounters and/or accidents with deer know that deer can be very unpredictable in their movements, and as such can present a major hazard.
