Woman Hit By Flying Deer

Don’t plan on using the phrase “I’ll believe that when deer fly,” anytime soon. Two women had an unfortunate encounter with a deer this past Thursday in Virginia. It started when a 71-year-old woman driving an SUV was heading southbound on a busy thoroughfare and a deer jumped out into the road in front of her car. The SUV hit the deer, which was sent flying toward the sidewalk where a 27-year -old woman was jogging. The younger woman was hit by the deer, and both women had to be taken to the hospital.


As for what happened to the deer, a man whose house backs up to the trail said he saw vultures circling near his property on Friday, feeding on a dead deer. When he found out the two were connected, he commented:

“It’s certainly an anomaly… that’s a surprise, ” said Disilvestre. “I might look out for deer next time I’m jogging.”

Another man, who was near the scene at the time of the accident, added:

“That’ pretty amazing. I don’t know what the statistics are for that but it’s pretty low.”
