🕐 1 min read

PLANO, Texas (AP) – A North Texas driver acquired an unexpected passenger when a deer trying to dash across the Sam Rayburn Tollway crashed into his car and ended up in the back seat.

Christopher Coleman of Frisco wasn’t hurt but the deer died after smashing through his windshield. The Nov. 11 incident was captured on security video.

Coleman says he noticed the deer on the side of the road, briefly “admired it” and then he heard a bang as the windshield broke and the animal entered his car. The deer ended up wedged behind the driver’s seat.

Coleman says seeing the deer in his car “freaked” him out. He says he’s amazed at not being injured and is just happy to be alive.
