Deer Hits a Police Car – level 3
Dashcam footage in a police vehicle shows a deer rushing into the road before the car hits it, and it dramatically flies through the air.
The Kentucky, USA, officer applied the brakes, but he managed to keep the vehicle on course despite the collision.
The local police department hopes that the encounter will be a lesson to everyone on what to do if you ever run into a deer. It said that although the police officer did not manage to avoid the collision, he did maintain control of his vehicle throughout the entire instant, even when the large, but apparently agile and acrobatically trained deer was performing a triple axel over the hood of his car. The police department even joked that, as it is getting closer to Christmas, it would have to check with Santa if he was not missing any helpers.
The police car sustained a lot of damage from the incident, but remarkably, you can see the deer at the end of the video escaping seemingly uninjured.
Difficult words: dashcam (a camera which is on the dash of a car – the flat area in front of the driver), footage (a video), rush (to move very fast), encounter (a meeting), agile (able to move well), axel (turning in the air), hood (the metal covering of the front of the car), helper (one of the reindeer that Santa uses).
