Actor Liam Neeson suffered numerous injuries after crashing into a deer with his motorcycle.

The 48-year-old actor was riding his 1989 Harley Davidson near the upstate New York home he shares with his wife Natasha Richardson when he hit the deer on the road.

The actor broke his pelvis and sustained multiple cuts to his legs. The deer ran off but later died of its injuries. His publicist says Neeson is resting comfortably and a fast recovery is expected.
