    I hope the person lives, but a closed head injury is going to be life changing. Good luck on recovery. A helmet really is a must. Deer collisions kill people, even in automobiles. We have a good size population of deer in this area and anyone who travel these roads should remember that. This sounds like a significant enough injury that who knows if he will be capable of riding again. So not worth it to ride without a helmet.
