Crossing deer vaults over car en route to Michigan

Sep 22 (UPI) — The dash cam of a Michigan State Police cruiser recorded a driver’s close call with a deer that managed to make a flying jump over the top of the vehicle.

Michigan State Police Fifth District posted a video: to Twitter featuring footage from the dashboard camera of a trooper driving in the southwest part of the state.

The video shows a group of deer suddenly crossing the road, with one of the animals initially appearing to run straight to the car in front of the trooper.

The deer leaps into the air and manages to land on the other side of the car to continue its sprint across the road.

“Autumn has arrived, and with it comes the infamous increase in crossings,” the police tweeted.
