A 10-point buck struck by a car Wednesday morning on Westside Road crashed through the windshield of a second vehicle, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

A GSP report says Rebekah Clark, 25, of Carmel Drive, was traveling past Bulloch Academy around 7:50 a.m. Wednesday when the buck ran into her path. She struck the deer with her 2005 Honda Accord, sending it airborne, said a GSP spokesperson.

The deer then came down, crashing through the windshield of a 2001 Toyota Land Cruiser driven by Giancarlo Gutierrez, 45, of Anna Way. The deer landed in the passenger seat of Gutierrez' vehicle.

No humans were injured, according to the GSP.
