Thompson dies in deer-cycle crash

Linda Thompson, 63, Dennison, died July 11 from injuries sustained in a collision between a deer and a motorcycle she was a passenger on with her husband, Michael Thompson, 66.

Cannon Falls Police Chief Jeff McCormick called it one of those freak accidents that happens in just an instant and changes lives forever.

McCormick said the collision happened on Sunday, July 7 at about 10:30 a.m. on County 24 near Spruce in Cannon Falls, south of the Cannon Mall.

McCormick said according to a witness the deer actually tried to jump over the motorcycle, causing a violent collision and crash of the motorcycle. McCormick said neither rider was wearing a helmet.

McCormick said two helicopters were auto-launched at the first report of the crash but only Linda Thompson ended up being evacuated by air.
