Street View Car Runs Over a Deer

Monday, 2nd February 2009 by

Last week Google removed some street view photos from upstate New York as they showed the camera car hitting a wild deer as it crossed the road.

The Google Sightseeing team was unfortunately on holiday when the news broke1, but the images were captured by various other sites before Google took them down.

However, you can still see deer in Japan, where Google drivers have managed to avoid a repeat incident.

Google have now issued a statement, complete with advice on what if a deer bolts in front of your car.

  1. Ironically, we were at a wildlife park when this story was published all over the internet. ↩︎
