Olmsted County Sheriff’s Captain James Schueller says the 52-year-old man was traveling west on Salem Rd. Southwest when a deer jumped in front of his motorcycle as he was navigating a curve in the 6,000 block shortly before 3:30 a.m. A witness following the man said the motorcycle was nearly level with the road while traveling at about 45 mph when the deer ran out. 

The witness told deputies the maneuver to avoid the deer caused the motorcyclist to be ejected from his seat. He was taken to a hospital by Mayo Ambulance. Schueller did not release the man's identity and said deputies were still working on the crash report.

Private 1960 Hilltop Rochester Minnesota Home Has Hidden Pool

Designed by Ellerbe and Company in 1959, this home isn't "a step back in time", but it is a step into the image you have about 1950's/60's homes from TV shows and movies. 

Plus, its super private, just up the hill from Bamber Valley Elementary. Most of the homes in that area are a marvel to see (take a walk up there sometimes, I think you'd really like it. Lots of trees and homes set way back). 

Enjoy this home at 2410 Hillside Lane SW in Rochester. It could be yours for just under $900,000.
