WEST DUNDEE, Ill. (AP) — A suburban Chicago woman is grateful her family is safe after a 200 pound deer leapt from an overpass, landing on their minivan as it traveled along an Illinois interstate.

Heidi Conner tells The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald ( http://bit.ly/1pxqNzj ) the doe came to rest in the middle of the West Dundee family's Chevy on Sunday. She and her four children were traveling about 70 mph on the Jane Addams Tollway.

She says the accident was bizarre, adding "nobody can believe this deer fell from the sky."

Illinois State Police say witnesses reported seeing the deer jump from an overpass.

Conner says the crash totaled the van and caused minor injuries, but says the way the deer landed on the vehicle was "a miracle in itself."

Police say the animal died.

I knew a girl in TN who had something like that happen on an interstate and she really got messed up, the deer jumped off a cliff in that case. glad these people didn't get hurt as badly as she did.

I hit one with an E-350 several years ago....3 ran across the road and I pegged the brakes and missed them.....and just as I started rolling again (under 5mph) the 4th darted in front of me and I couldnt get it stopped again in time.

Just touched him, yet he destroyed the grill, bent the bumper and cracked one headlight. I think I would have done less damage bumping a brick wall at the same speed. They are one SOLID animal to tap with a truck.

and too add insult to injury, this guy turned his head, looked right at me, and calmly walked away like to say "frack you, Mike"

Or maybe, "Buck!" ...or something like that.

Someone who worked at China Mart last year had a bad dent in the hood of their dodge minivan and in black marker they had a statement above it saying,

"The Buck Stopped here!"
