A peaceful motorcycle ride through the Grimes County countryside came to an abrupt halt Wednesday afternoon when a rider collided with a deer.
Spring resident Michael Frederick was air lifted to Herman Memorial Hospital in The Woodlands. The extent of his injuries is unknown.
Frederick was riding with two friends on FM 149 near Anderson when the accident occurred. He was knocked off his motorcycle, then accidentally struck by the front wheel of his friend's motorcycle.
Neither of the other two riders was injured. The deer was killed instantly.
