The officer, Cavalier Anderson, was driving behind another car on a highway when suddenly a small herd of deer started crossing the road. No deer were struck by a vehicle.

The Michigan State Police cruiser’s dashcam captured the first deer clearing the car. The second deer reportedly ran straight into the driver’s side door – but surprisingly jumped over the car. A third deer ran behind the car and just ahead of the soldier, who braked quickly but calmly to let the deer continue across the road.

State police used the footage as an opportunity to share important deer safety tips with the community. According to Michigan.gov, the state sees about 50,000 vehicle-deer collisions each year.

In the event of an encounter with a deer, the agency reminded people to be calm, use controlled braking and steer straight instead of swerving.

“Nobody wants to hit a deer, but if you try to avoid the deer, the risk of hitting another vehicle or losing control increases,” Michigan State Police tweeted.
