Caught on Cam: Deer Meets Bus Windshield

May 16, 2013 11:51am

A white-tailed deer got a free bus ride Tuesday night as it shockingly crashed through the windshield of a Johnstown, Pa., CamTran bus.

Around 6:30 p.m., the deer came hurling through the front window, alarming bus driver John Porter, and the only other passenger on board, who was fortunately seated towards the back of the bus, away from the commotion.

“Just out of the blue, something out of the corner of my eye, I saw something come through the window and a deer was there,” Porter told local news station, WPXI. “It was kicking around pretty good.”

The deer began frantically hopping around near the passenger entry-door, clearly disoriented, jumping onto empty seats and circling in the aisle until the driver was successfully able to pull over, open the doors and let the animal escape.

“The driver immediately stopped the bus,” CamTran spokesman, Josh Yoder, told the Johnstown Tribune-Democrat newspaper. “He opened the door and the deer just walked off the bus.”

No injuries were reported from the incident, and the bus was taken to a local maintenance garage for repairs.
