Incident type: Animal encounter
Location of incident: East Washington Road, Carlock, Illinois 61725, United States


I saw the oncoming car approaching and suddenly heard the driver lock up the brakes. I had no idea why, and half-expected some aggressive anti-cyclist behavior. Next thing I know, I hear a thump and see this deer sliding across the road right at me. I had just managed to stop when it slammed into my bike!
