VISALIA, Ky. (CNN) – There were some tense moments behind the wheel for a Kentucky officer after a deer ran into his police cruiser over the weekend.
It was all captured on his patrol car dash cam.
The animal slammed into the hood of the car, then flipped into a road sign before hitting the ground.
The deer quickly brushed off the incident and ran into the woods.
The officer says he maintained control by hitting his brakes and steering away from the deer.
He was not hurt but the cruiser has some damage to the front headlight.
