NEWMAN LAKE, Wash. - A motorcyclist walked away virtually uninjured after colliding with a deer on N. Starr Road. It happened around 7:30 Tuesday evening in the 8300 block of N. Starr Road. Sheriff's deputies on scene report the motorcyclist was heading south on Starr Road when the deer jumped in front of his bike. He hit the deer going about 35 MPH. Fortunately, he was wearing a helmet and full leathers, so despite rolling several dozen feet, he walked away with only a bruised rib. In a strange twist, directly behind the motorcyclist was a Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy. He actually saw the entire crash happen right in front of him. The deputy was in the area after having just responded to an unrelated domestic violence call. The motorcyclist did not want to go to the hospital, and was treated at the scene. Starr Road was partially blocked for a short time, but has since reopened.
