It's not hitting the deer that was strange, but where it ended up that was something authorities said they've never seen before.

Jerry Nelson says in a blink, the deer came through the windshield. The head ended up underneath the dash and the hide was draped over the seat, and the rest of it ended up in the back seat. Nelson escaped without a scratch.
