There was a local fellow on a training ride doing hill repeats on the steepest grade hill we have (he was a very good category 3 racer) when he struck a deer on the downhill at high speed. Broke numerous bones and pretty much ended his racing career.

A woman whom I tour with had a squirrel dart out in front of her on a decent downhill and got caught up in her front wheel. She went over the bars and broke her clavicle.

Stuff happens, glad you weren't hurt.
