Deputy Jay Cooksey was heading to a call about a home intrusion in the southwest part of Livingston County when a deer crossed his path and hit the front of the Dodge Ram.
The Livingston County Sheriff's Department said a push bumper on the truck helped minimize the damage. The sheriff's office is awaiting damage estimates from its insurance company.
A different deputy was able to handle the home intrusion call.
