A 30-year-old man died Sunday, two days after a bizarre accident near Chama in which a deer struck by a motorist hurtled through the air and landed on another vehicle — the one carrying Benardino “Ben” Archibeque.

Rio Arriba County Sheriff Tommy Rodella said during his time in law enforcement, he has seen plenty of collisions between wildlife and motor vehicles. “But I have never seen anything of this magnitude,” he said. “It’s very sad to have seen this occurred.”

    The mother should sue the Game and Fish Department, this deer was their property and responsibility.

    A very sad story. Even though the carcass was claimed by wardens, was the driver of the Volvo cited by the Fish and Game wardens for destroying state property and for not calling them within 24 hours as required by their rules?
