says "watching out damian crowson says, "the eagle point high school was running a fire drill, and upon students exiting the building, there were two deer on campus that we're spooked, and one of them ran into a student who was exiting for the fire drill." "i think i got hit in the face with a hoof." that student is senior josie lemley she suffered a concussion and some serious cuts and scrapes i'll warn you, some of the pictures following the accident are pretty graphic. but first here's a video a student took right after the incident. you can see school staff and students gathered around josie who was knocked unconscious for about 30 seconds, and here-- the deer struggling after it likely brome its leg from the force of the collision "i'm joined by josie to tell me about her during school hours, i made it halfway out there and next thing i know i was on the ground. i never saw any deer." that's because the deer that hit her came so fast-- the school speculates something, possibly the alarms spooked it staff called 9-1-1 and josie was taken to the hospital. one administrator says the incident may affect how the school practices drills in the future. he says they might add perimeter checks as part of their drill plan. for now this student says it was a freak accident -- that she's glad to be walking away from.
