The speeding skateboarder, Ryan Vitale, was racing downhill at 65 kilometres per hour when a deer darted out in front of him to cross the road. Although Ryan swerved to avoid the collision, he was unsuccessful and ended up somersaulting into a tree.
The incident took place during the Buffalo Bill Downhill race in Golden, Colorado. Both the deer and skateboarder are reported to be ok, despite the intensity of the wipeout.
"I was really glad to see both the deer and Ryan were okay," videographer Mike Paproski, who shot the footage, told GrindTV.
All we can say is "Oh Deer".Related Links:
