New Jersey flying deer floors Hippo

Old timer survives airborne cervine impact

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

A New Jersey old timer is recovering from a nasty cut to the head after being floored by a flying deer as he took a stroll close to his Logan Township home.

Donald Hippo, 66, was described by police as being "simply at the wrong place at the wrong time", in this case Grandview Road at around 9am last Thursday. A truck driver slammed into the unfortunate cervine which "jumped out of nowhere", was sent airborne by the impact and "knocked Hippo's feet right out from under him".

Hippo was subsequently treated for his injury and is "doing fine", according to local cops. The truck driver was unhurt, but the deer sadly "didn't make it".

Quite how much damage the truck suffered in the incident is not noted, but we doubt it's on the same scale as that absorbed by the Michigan minivan, last year pretty well written off by a bovine 200ft death plunge. ®
