Deer Smashes Through Windshield

TACOMA, Wash. (KCPQ) — A Tacoma truck driver had a close call Monday morning when a deer jumped through the front windshield of his truck and completely smashed into the cab.

According to Washington State Patrol, the driver was traveling on Interstate 5 near Tacoma when the deer jumped up and hit the truck’s windshield. The deer went completely through the windshield and landed in the cab, officials said.

Luckily, the driver of the truck managed to pull over to the side of the road and safely stop.

The driver suffered minor cuts, and has already left the Tacoma area and was on his way home to Portland.
