An Urbandale Police officer is recovering after a run-in with a large deer on a bike trail. Officer West Dawson had been at a bicycle training instructor school in Johnston with other officers, and went on a ride.

The path took them downhill at one point at a pretty fast clip. Dawson says a large deer suddenly appeared on the trail in his path. The officer and the deer collided and tumbled down the hill. Dawson and the deer were injured but both walked away from the crash.

Dawson credits his bike helmet with preventing more serious injuries, and reminds bicyclists that a bike helmet could prevent injuries to them as well.


Crash Date: Sept 19th 2022
