On arrival, officers observed two cars, one that appeared to have rear-ended the other, and a deceased deer in the roadway. Officers spoke to the operator of the first car who stated that she was driving along Baker Street when the deer came out of nowhere and jumped in front of her motor vehicle. According to the operator, she was unable to avoid the animal.
Police say a driver behind the first car was unable to stop in time and hit the back of the first car. Both cars, however, were able to leave the scene under their own power, unlike the deer.
In December, another deer met its demise in front of Faulkner Hospital in Jamaica Plain, when it collided with a Boston Police cruiser.
