BARTHOLOMEW COUNTY, Ind. (WISH/WLNS) — A woman had to be flown to an Indianapolis hospital Thursday evening after crashing into a deer.

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

Baker’s husband, who was a passenger in the Jeep, told police they hit a deer, causing them to run off the road. He then said they hit a mailbox and ran through a tree line. The Jeep stopped in a front yard.

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

Baker was taken by medical helicopter to IU Health Methodist Hospital.

On Friday morning, she was listed in critical condition.
