Accident lands deer in back seat of pickup

Posted: Updated:
GEORGIA, Vt. -

Four people in a pickup truck somehow avoided major injuries when a deer crashed through their windshield.

It happened Wednesday afternoon on Route 104A in Georgia. Police say the deer jumped into the road and was struck by a van. The animal flew into the air and crashed into the truck, coming from the other direction.

The deer wound up in the back seat of the extended cab truck.

"They're pretty fortunate it appears that, you know, they're probably not seriously hurt," Georgia Fire Chief Keith Baker said.

Police say the two adults and two children were taken to the hospital for evaluation.
