In the words of Becker County Deputy Sid Canham, you never see anything good at the scene of a motorcycle-deer accident.

He was the first law enforcement officer on the scene after Todd Pearson,  a state trooper who was motorcycling on Becker County Road 37 in his off time with his wife, Nancy, hit a deer.


For Todd, it meant five broken ribs, a punctured lung and a bruised liver. Nancy suffered a nasty road rash.
