PUTNAM COUNTY, Mo. – A deer crash recently led to a scary and unusual encounter for a semi-driver in northern Missouri.

The crash happened around 12:45 p.m. Friday on Missouri Route 136 in Putnam County near the Missouri-Iowa state line.

Investigators with the Missouri State Highway Patrol say a driver in a pick-up truck initially hit the deer when she was heading eastbound on the highway. The deer then went airborne upon impact and struck a semi-truck heading in the opposite direction.
