Deer Flies Through Car During Family Pizza Run: 'It Came Right Through the Windshield

"It came right through the windshield and actually t-boned me in the face."

MINNEAPOLIS (The Blaze/AP) — A Minnesota family on a pizza run bagged a deer instead when a small buck struck by an oncoming car flew through their windshield and out their rear window.

Chris and Susan Blake and their 17-year-old daughter, Olivia, were injured but survived the frightening crash last weekend along the Blue Earth County highway.

The deer struck Chris in the face and glanced off Sue before striking Olivia in the back seat. The animal's momentum sent it through the rear window.

"It came right through the windshield and actually t-boned me in the face," Chris told KARE-TV.

He said he broke numerous bones in his face and that his daughter broke her nose and fractured her cheek. Susan Blake had scratches to her face and bruising.

"In my 20 years with the patrol I think this is the first time that I've had a deer come through the windshield, go all the way through the car and then out the back," the investigating officer, Trooper Mark Fahning of the Minnesota State Patrol, told the TV station.

Olivia has two weeks until she is set to play the lead in the school musical, "Hello Dolly."

The deer was killed.
