VIDEO: Car and Deer Collide on Annapolis Road
An Odenton resident captured video of his car striking a deer in Gambrills last week.
Amir Pishvaei was driving his new car last week on Annapolis Road, approaching Route 3 when a deer abruptly came out onto the road.
"I've seen deer there before and I'm always scared when I drive there," he told Patch in an email. "Unfortunately, that night, last Wednesday, I went out for a short drive to get gas on my brand new car and this happened."
The video shows the deer quickly come out from the north side of the road and striking the left side of the car. Pishvaei's car was equipped with an on-dash camera, and he managed to capture the scene of the deer coming from the north side of the road. It's clear that the deer had no regard for traffic or his or her own safety.
Pishvaei said the impact caused damage to the car's hood. The deer, meanwhile ran off and did not even appear to be hurt, Pishvaei said.
