Deer falls from overpass into family’s mini-van on I-90

A family from the western suburbs was just two exits away from ending an eight hour road trip, when a deer fell from the sky onto their mini-van.

Heidi Conner and her four kids were on I-90 near Barrington on Sunday, when the deer jumped or fell off the Route 72 overpass.

It smashed through the windshield, and landed all the way into the van.

Connor steered through three lanes of traffic to safety.

She has a sore shoulder and bruises, but her kids are OK.

The van was totaled.

The deer was killed in the collision.
