Car Accident Causes Deer to Fly in and out of Car
A Minnesota couple and their 17-year-old daughter escaped a recent car accident battered and bruised, but in decent shape after a deer crashed through their front windshield and flew out the back of the vehicle.
The car accident was caused by another vehicle driving in the opposite direction initially striking the deer, launhching the animal into the air. It ultimately landed on the hood of the Minnesota couple’s car. As the deer crashed through the front windshield, it hit the driver in the face. The deer then collided with the driver’s wife, who was sitting in the passenger seat, before smacking their daughter in the face as it passed through the back seat on its way through the rear windshield.
The driver suffered broken bones in his sinus cavity, eye sockets, nose, and upper jawbone. It will take at least two surgeries to properly correct the damage to his face. The driver’s wife sustained scratches to the face and a bruised shoulder, while their daughter has a broken nose, fractured cheek, and swollen face. She is hoping she can heal in the next two weeks before the opening of her school play. She has the lead role in “Hello Dolly.”
