It happened in the 2700 block of West Carr Hill Road in Indiana, shortly before 6 p.m. When deputies responded to the scene they found the driver, 41-year-old Amy Baker, unconscious with head injuries.

Baker’s husband, who was a passenger in the vehicle, told police they hit a deer, causing them to run off the road, hit a mailbox and run through a tree line. The vehicle came to a rest in a front yard.

Deputies said the deer hit the front of the vehicle, flew over the hood and through the windshield. The deer was found in the rear of the vehicle. Deputies said they had never seen anything like it.

Baker was taken by medical helicopter to IU Health Methodist Hospital. Friday morning, she was listed in critical condition.
