    I know what really happened. The truck driver is a part time hunter and saw a sizable buck bolt across the highway and he wasn't about to let that deer get away. Such determination.

    He sure went a long way without hitting the brakes. He went off the road, down through the grass.... for a while, before he ever got into the trees. Then the distance he went up into the trees plowing up everything. I think I'd've tried to get that thing stopped before going into those trees. I think you'd have plainly seen trenches in the grass/dirt cause the brakes were locked up.
