WICHITA, Kansas - A man on motorcycle that collided with a deer Saturday night wants his accident to be a wake-up call to others.
Gordon Rogers was on his way home Saturday evening headed west on MacArthur just past 119th Street.
He says he saw a deer, let up off the throttle, but a split second later another deer was right in front of him.
He hit the animal going 55 miles per hour, tumbled off his bike and says he was still conscious after rolling four or five times.
"People have got to be aware. You have no control. You can do everything humanly possible but still it's," said Rogers. "My helmet, it's scratched up. It has got some deep scratches in it and that would have been the left side of my head."
Rogers will recover, but he says it's because of Saturday night's near tragedy that he will never ride his motorcycle without a helmet again.
