Airborne deer breaks windshield after collision with separate vehicle

MADISON, Wis. - A deer versus vehicle collision outside Richland Center on Wednesday afternoon caused the deer to go airborne and break the windshield of another truck, the Richland County Sheriff's Department said.

According to the Sheriff's Department, a vehicle was being driven on U.S. 14 west of Richland Center when a deer emerged from a cornfield, leading to an "unavoidable" collision. 

The deer went airborne and flew behind the car and struck the windshield of a pickup truck, breaking its windshield and side mirror, officials said.

The Sheriff's Department said the driver of a passing semi-truck saw the incident and stopped to assist.

The first car also sustained major damage and was towed from the scene. No injuries were reported.
