Deer meets car

LACEY, Wash. -- A 55-year-old woman is lucky to have only suffered a few scrapes after her car collided with a deer on I-5 Tuesday morning.

The woman was going south near Sleater Kinney Road when a deer ran across the northbound lanes, then jumped the jersey barrier into the southbound lanes, said Trooper Guy Gill with the Washington State Patrol.

The deer struck the woman's windshield, flipped over the car, then crashed into the back window and landed in the trunk.

Somehow, the woman was able to safely steer her car to the shoulder with the deer still stuck inside her car.

"This woman did an excellent job getting her car to the right shoulder ithout colliding with other motorists," Gill said. "Not to mention, she's very lucky she didn't get seriously injured."

Troopers had to extricate the deer from the car before the car could be towed.
