CAUGHT ON TAPE: Deer Crashes Through Windshield of Moving Bus

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (CNN) — A bus driver in Pennsylvania got an unexpected passenger on his route earlier this week,

The scared deer actually came straight through the windshield.

“Every day is an experience driving a bus.”

And Tuesday was no exception for Camtran driver John Porter.

Porter had a passenger make a smashing entrance.

“Something caught my eye and next thing I knew, the deer came through the bottom of the window and tried getting back out,” Porter adds.

Porter was on Goucher Street when this deer got airborne and crashed through the front window, and it crossed the yellow line while the bus was still moving, which is a big no-no.

“It scared me at first.”

The frantic deer scrambled, trying to get out.

Porter says he brought the bus to a quick stop. He then let the deer out, but there was one problem.

He left without paying.

“No one ride free on my bus,” Porter quips.

One passenger was in the very back of the bus when this deer tried hitching a ride. Porter says other than the bus damage, he’s okay.

“I had glass in the hair that I have left and a few little cuts!”

It was one ride and a passenger Porter says he won’t soon forget.

“It was a different experience.”
