COEYMANS — In the horrifying seconds during which a deer hurtled toward their windshield,
Heather Sherman told her family, “We’re done.”
The deer shattered the windshield. The five passengers had no time to scream.
But it wasn’t until after the family pulled over and Sherman reached into the cargo
area to get a blanket and paper towels that she found the doe inside the SUV. It had
soared past two front-seat and three back-seat passengers, but caused only minor cuts
“How we survived this is beyond me,” Sherman said. “I looked at my boyfriend, and
he looked at me. We were both covered in blood.”
