A 65-year-old Pennsylvania man survived getting T-boned by a deer during a group bike ride, sustaining a cracked vertebra, broken ribs and a concussion.
“You just don't think of a deer running over you,” Allen Kinkead told KDKA-TV.
Kinkead was about 20 miles into the bike ride in Penn Township April 13, when a stag bounded across the road and trampled him.
"When I woke up on the pavement, somebody was standing over me and said, 'You were T-boned by a deer,'" he told the station.

He says he doesn’t remember the collision.
Covered in road burn, he was flown to Allegheny General Hospital and fitted for a neck brace. He was released last week.
"I'm not able to do much of anything," he said. "I can walk, I can talk, I can stand … I'm not allowed to lift anything heavy."
Kinkead owns a bike shop, which was started by his grandfather in 1912. He says he’ll fix the wrecked bike. When he’s well again, he plans to get back out there on a bike again.
