Dashcam Deer Surprise

A Rochester Police dashcam caught quite the surprise guests while monitoring runners at the Chill at the Mills 5k last weekend. Dashcam footage shows runners jogging by in a residential area when a deer suddenly jumps into frame springing over a road barricade and the patrol car. 

The video, that was posted on Facebook last Sunday, has garnered over 58,000 views. The department commented on the video of the apparent group of deer that “one went right over the hood. We are just sorry they missed the turn with their fellow runners.” 

Rochester is a small community with a population of about 13,000 people approximately one-hour southwest of Port Huron. The downtown area is known best for its Christmas lights display.
