A Pennsylvania bus driver survived a terrifying encounter with a wild deer that burst through the windshield before frantically jumping around looking for a way out. The driver had some minor cuts on his hands from the broken glass but otherwise just wanted a copy of the security video "before it went viral."

Bus driver John Porter was at the wheel Tuesday night with just one (human) passenger aboard when the deer was struck on the road somewhere around Johnstown, Pennsylvania. The deer flew through the glass and recovered enough to immediately begin hunting for an exit.

The driver pulled over, allowing the deer to exit through the front doors, which is generally discouraged on American public transit systems.
