Oh, deer! Camera captures animal flying toward cyclists after being hit by car

- Some cyclists in North Carolina were nearly hit by a flying deer after the animal was struck by a car -- and it was all captured on video.

The collision occurred Wednesday as Peter Flur and four friends were finishing a 45-mile bike ride from the Brace Family YMCA in Charlotte through Union County. Mounted cameras on the front and rear of Flur’s bicycle captured the incident.

As the group approached an intersection, a large deer sprinted across the road in front of lead cyclist Missie Mansfield and was struck a split-second later by a dark-colored Audi traveling in the opposite direction.

The car sent the deer hurtling through the air, back across the double yellow line. Cyclist Melonie Norris can be seen ducking while trying to keep her bike steady.
