(Newser) – A deer hit by a minivan in Tennessee went airborne and struck someone walking by hard enough to break some of the pedestrian's bones, the AP reports. Police spokesperson Natalie Hall tells the Leaf-Chronicle that a driver hit the deer Thursday evening near downtown Clarksville. The animal flew off the minivan and hit a pedestrian, who was treated at Tennova Healthcare for broken bones. "This is not a type of crash that happens often," Hall said. (Read more deer stories.)
