Car Hits Deer, Deer Hits Man, Man Breaks Ankle

Man, would Sir Isaac Newton be all over this once-in-a-blue moon accident story. Robert Brooks of Modesto, California was driving along Blackhawk Road in the East Bay when a deer leapt out in front of him. Unsure if he clipped the animal, he got out of his car to check for damage. Meanwhile, another driver came tearing along and ran smack into another (or possibly the same) deer and punted the poor creature off the grille and straight into Brooks, who suffered a broken ankle. The deer was pronounced dead at the scene, and perhaps leery of also suffering Brooks' fate, the other driver sped on without stopping. [Thanks to the effervescent Nixie for the tip.]
