Pennsylvania Driver Unscathed After Deer Ends up in Car

WNEP

A freak accident saw a deer end up in the back seat of a Toyota Corolla. This Pennsylvania driver definitely had Lady Luck on her side.

First responders were skeptical when the call came in from a woman telling them that a deer had just went through her car’s windshield, and ultimately ended up in the back seat. Upon arriving on scene, they were more shocked that the woman had no injuries.

The driver, name not released, was traveling along Route 93 in Luzerne County on the evening of January 13 when the collision occurred. The deer, a 100 pound doe, crashed through the passenger side of the front windshield and carried through to the floor of the back seat. It died on impact.


Rescuers believe the deer may have jumped off a steep embankment, explaining how it might be possible for the animal to travel so far inside the vehicle.

Sugarloaf Township police are currently investigating the collision.
