    A police officer's dashcam video captured a driver fighting off a deer to prevent the buck from jumping inside her car after she pulled over on a New Jersey road.

    Howell Police Officer Nicholas Austin was on Oak Glen Road on Sept. 17 at about 8 p.m. when he saw the deer run across the road directly toward a car in front of him that was pulling over. 

    The car had struck the deer moments before, police said. 

    Video shows the driver of the car opening her car door and the deer immediately trying to rush into the vehicle. 

    The driver then kicks the deer out of the car and shuts the door.

    The driver was not seriously injured, but the deer died because of its injuries, police said.
