This is the last thing you need happening when responding to an emergency call.
Back in 2017, a Minnesota Sheriff from Isanti County was responding to just that when in the blink of an eye, he hit a deer head on.
While in pursuit the car reached 100 MPH, and as you’d imagine, plenty of damage was done to both the squad car and deer.
The Sheriff wasn’t injured, and luckily no other cars were involved. The deer obviously wasn’t so lucky…
This s-t is intense.
