Motorcyclist collides with deer in north Moorhead

MOORHEAD – An Oakport man sustained a head injury and abrasions after a motorcycle collision with a deer Monday.

Daniel Sauvageau was riding his motorcycle on 70th Avenue North in Moorhead when the accident occurred.

“I don’t think I hit him that hard,” he said. “It nailed me on the side and pushed me in the ditch.”

Clay County Sheriff Bill Bergquist said Sauvageau sustained a head injury when he fell.

Sauvageau said his head was the hardest part of his body and that he was “alive and well.”

He declined to go to the hospital.
