A Minnesota sheriff’s deputy hit a deer at 114 mph and the collision was caught on his squad car’s dash cam.
The video was released by the Isanti County sheriff’s office and put on their Facebook page.
The deputy was responding to a report about a man with a gun at a local restaurant in Cambridge, Minnesota. The deputy was traveling around 114 mph with his lights and sirens on when he struck the deer.
The windshield was completely smashed, the hood nearly torn off, the bumper guard on the front end was bent, and the engine was left smoking after the accident.
Despite all of that the deputy was uninjured. The video shows him on bodycam footage exiting the vehicle and monitoring the area of the crash.
“If the deputy swerved, he would have rolled and been injured or worse. Staying in a straight line kept the injuries to a minimum when the air bags deployed,” says Isanti County Sheriff Chris Caulk.
