Dave detailed the accident to KTVI, according to Fox2 Now. "It hit the truck and spun around and smashed my door," Dave recalls. "I pulled over to the shoulder of the road, backed up and it was dead. I looked at it wasn't breathing, bleeding from its mouth. So I loaded it in the back of my truck." Dave drove home then went to the rear of his truck to retrieve the deer. When he opened the tailgate, the deer exploded from the gate almost running into him in the process.
