Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Part one of this story is here

This installment documents what happened after the crash and follows me to the emergency room and describes my injuries and the medical attention I received.

After the impact with the deer, I was unconscious and bleeding from a gash to my forehead.  According to one of my riding partners, David Bearden, not only was I completely knocked out, but I was laying in a pool of blood that he estimated had to be at least a pint.

“You could have bled out” he said.  “By the time I got my bike stopped, Jay Christopher was already with you and had you propped up in his lap, trying to stop the bleeding.”
