COEYMANS, N.Y. (AP) - Five people in an SUV south of Albany escaped with minor cuts and scratches when a deer hurtled through their windshield and landed in the back of the vehicle.

Heather Sherman says she, her boyfriend, her two daughters and her mother were driving Saturday night in the town of Coeymans (KWEE’-mihnz) when an oncoming car hit the deer, sending it into their windshield.

Sherman says she and her boyfriend were covered in blood after the impact. They pulled over, and when she went to the back of the SUV to get a blanket and paper towels, she found the dead doe in the vehicle’s cargo area.

The deer flew past Sherman and her boyfriend in the front seats and her daughters and mother in the back seats.

Sherman says no one in the SUV remembers ducking.
