Disturbing dashcam footage from a police cruiser in Kenton County, Kentucky captured a collision with a deer, and when you see it, you’ll know why it’s going viral.
The Kenton County Police Department has revealed that Officer Pittaluga was behind the wheel of the cruiser when the crash occurred, and that he was thankfully uninjured in the incident. According to The Blaze, Pittaluga has received an online salute from the department’s Facebook page for his actions during the encounter.
“Although he didn’t manage to avoid the collision, he did maintain control of his vehicle throughout the entire incident, even when the large (but apparently agile and acrobatically trained) deer was performing a Triple Axel over the hood of his cruiser,” they wrote.
Pittaluga’s cruiser, however, picked up a few dents from the ordeal.
After flying over the cruiser, the deer miraculously got up and ran into the woods.
