A bicyclist is lucky to be alive after a high speed collision with a deer.

On Sunday afternoon, the bicyclist was traveling at high speeds toward Sausalito, California when a deer jumped into his path. The incident was caught on tape by a Fly6 camera, a recording device that fits into the bike's light.

The bicyclist states he landed on his back and his head struck the pavement. A Giro helmet likely saved him from brain injury, he said.

He walks away from the accident with a mild concussion and minor memory loss. However, he states he feels lucky that he did not suffer further injury.
