According to the AP, George Ljutich, who was cycling with Cynthia Mooney, in Hopewell Township when a car hit a deer, which then went flying into the Ljutich's and Mooney's path. The AP reports, "Ljutich was thrown from the bike and struck his head on the pavement. Mooney sustained cuts and bruises"--and they were both wearing helmets. There have been some other recent incidents where deer have collided into people in NJ, but a state DEP spokesperson said, "Based on what's known about deer behavior, there's nothing occurring within the herd right now that might explain these accidents."
