BROWN COUNTY (NBC 26) — A De Pere motorcyclist died Tuesday after spending weeks in the hospital following a crash with a deer.

On July 4, at around 5 a.m., deputies of the Brown County Sheriff’s Office were sent to the area of 5408 Tower RD in the Town of Rockland for a report of a crash.

At this time, the sheriff's office said it is believed that the motorcycle was traveling northbound on Tower RD when a deer stepped out in front of him causing the crash. A local farmer came across the crash and dialed 911.

The victim is Dale E Perock, a 60-year-old man from DePere. He was treated at the scene initially by deputies and first responders before being transported to an area hospital where he remained hospitalized until his passing on Tuesday.

The incident is being investigated by the Brown County Sheriff’s Office.
