(Update: Libby provided an update on Saturday, Nov. 18 reporting that the crash occurred “in front of my kids’ house” and that another motorist immediately called 9-1-1. He explained, “The EMT’s and the staff at Bridgeport Hospital were phenomenal in responding, assessing and commended me over and over on the fact that I was wearing all of the proper riding gear. I believe my full-faced helmet possibly saved me life. I suffered a small fracture in my right collarbone, a very small collapse in the right lung, and some minor scrapes and bruises. The deer was not as lucky.”
