A famous lawnmower and tractor company says that, "Nothing runs like a Deer[e]" and two cyclists up in Leelanau county now have first-hand experience to back up that claim. Dan Hofstra and Bob Otwell were riding along amongst a group of 15 cyclists when a deer ran out of the woods and sent Hofstra flying when he ran into the deer and then the deer slammed into Otwell before making it across the road. I had never heard of anyone on a bike having a run-in with a deer before, but apparently Hostra and Otwell join a short list that includes them and Tim Brick in the Traverse City area alone. According to the Traverse City Record Eagle both men suffered the following injuries -
Otwell suffered a broken pelvis and possibly separated his shoulder.
Hofstra received several stitches on his knee and sustained a possible fractured vertebrae.
