TN Trooper Saves Motorist Impaled by Deer Antler

November 10, 2017  | 

On Oct. 25, Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Russell Bernard was dispatched to a crash involving a vehicle that had struck a deer. When he arrived on the scene, he found the driver bleeding heavily from a large wound on the left side of her neck.

Bernard determined that the deer came through the windshield of the driver's vehicle after it was struck by a different vehicle. When the deer crashed through the windshield, the antlers punctured the driver's neck, as well as the driver's seat, Local 8 reports.

"I commend Trooper Bernard for taking swift action to save the life of the injured driver," THP Colonel Tracy Trott said. "Trooper Bernard was able to apply his cadet training and respond quickly using the proper technique and protocol. I am proud of the work we do every day to save lives on our Tennessee roadways."

In my county auto vs deer (and sometimes bear) collisions are common. But the last several weeks have seen me dispatching units to them every night. Fortunately only the deer have been injured/killed so far. Profits are up for towing companies and auto body shops too!
