HOMEWOOD, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania borough official says a deer survived a 40-foot plunge from a bridge into the municipal garage over the weekend.

The Beaver County Times (https://bit.ly/2dL7x3w ) reports that the six-point buck apparently jumped off the Homewood bridge that carries the Pennsylvania Turnpike over Route 18 in the Beaver County borough.

Council president Alan DeSanzo says he found the animal in the garage Saturday morning. He said the deer fell through plywood that was about eight inches thick, and that probably helped break its fall before it hit the concrete floor of the garage.

DeSanzo said there’s a “pretty good sized hole” in the roof, and he hopes insurance will cover some of the cost - but he doesn’t look forward to explaining the situation to the insurance company.
