A cyclist descending Mount Lemmon in Arizona hit the pavement quite hard when a deer descending the mountain from another direction than he did, made for a crash which caused him to break his foot
Seeing the fall, it was incredible that cyclist Reed Soehnel emerged from this with only a broken foot, cuts and bruises and a mangled bike.
Mr Soehnel stated: “I was fully alert and (had) no concussion symptoms the entire time, so that’s why the decision was made to not involve an ambulance, although I was in a decent amount of pain.”
“The end result is a shattered bicycle, some road rash, and a broken foot.”
“You can see my back wheel in the video, we were both very lucky it wasn’t worse.”
