CONCORD, N.C. - A deer ran into a Concord hospital Thursday after crashing through a car windshield.
Hospital officials said the young male deer came out of a wooded area next to Carolinas Medical Center Northeast, crossed the street and jumped over a hedge, landing on an employee’s windshield.
“It hit my car and runs into the kitchen where I’m working,” Jane McManus said.
The deer entered the hospital through a loading dock and proceeded down a hallway into the kitchen.
“Everyone was going crazy,” McManus said.
Hospital employees were able to corral the deer in a utility closet and hold it until animal control officers could arrive.
The deer was tranquilized and transported to another wooded area in the county.
“It’s an insane story,” McManus said.
