NBC NATIONAL NEWS — A wild deer crashed through the door of a Dacula, Georgia convenience store last Sunday.
It ran straight into 11-year-old Samantha Irons, who was hit so hard she suffered a concussion, along with bruises and scrapes.
While she was helped by people inside the store, the deer continued to run around the aisles of the Kwick Check.
The store's owner said he was lucky the floors became slippery with spilled drinks, so that the deer couldn't get better traction to destroy the shelves full of food.
The deer eventually became exhausted, and police decided to put it down due to its injuries.
