Deer Hit By Car Crashes Into Bystander


An accident involving two cars and two deer tied up traffic on Highway 24 in Woodland Park for more than an hour Wednesday morning.

According to police, a woman unwittingly caused a domino effect when she got out of her vehicle to check on a fawn that she had struck on the roadway. She was heading eastbound on the highway and was near the Woodland Park Walmart when she hit the baby deer.

While she was standing outside her car, a second vehicle pulled up and a man got out to assist.

The pair was standing in the median checking on the baby deer when a third vehicle heading westbound crashed into a full grown deer, believed to be the fawn's mother. The force of impact sent the deer flying, and it hit the woman in the median at a high rate of speed.

The woman was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.

Woodland Park police say the crash was cleared around 8:30 a.m.
