Weird things seem to happen at the Buffalo Bill Downhill on Lookout Mountain. Last year's longboarding race was cut short by a helicopter crash -- and this year, one rider got video of another slamming into a deer at about forty miles per hour. Both man and deer are reportedly okay, which makes it easier to enjoy the filmographer declaring, "Holy shit! That was so fucking radical!" He's right. Check out the clip below.
Update: For an interview with the videographer, Mike Paproski, visit our sister blog, Show & Tell.
