A scary encounter with a dark highway and a deer was caught on camera thanks to a dash cam.

A Howell woman literally had to kick the deer as it tried to jump into her SUV!

The entire episode was caught on a Howell Police Officer's dash cam.

According to NJ.com, Ellen Sager was obviously shocked,

"It was mad, real mad," Sager said of the deer in an interview with News 12. "It happened so fast. I just grabbed a handful of antlers and tried to keep it from killing me."

So scary!
