Watch: Cross country runner gets pummeled by deer mid-race

A video by Facebook user Eric Bologa captured a crazy moment during a cross-country meet last weekend where a runner was absolutely trucked by a deer just getting across the course.

See the hit for yourself:

Justin DeLuzio of Gwynedd Mercy College, the cross-country runner who was drilled, still managed to get up and finish the race.
