LOCUST, N.C. (CNN Newsource) — An incredible scene in the parking lot of a North Carolina McDonald’s.

A deer came charging out of nowhere and slammed into a man walking to his car — and the whole thing was caught on camera.

“It was absolutely nuts,” said retired detective Ken Worthy — who was hit and knocked down by the deer.

“It was just a bit of brown… and then I saw his face — and I was down on the ground — that quick,” Worthy said.

The incident happened in the middle of the day in Locust, North Carolina, according to WSOC-TV.

“I mean just see the flash of him rolling over me and in a straight line and he was gone,” Worthy said.

Worthy was with his wife in the parking lot around 12:30 p.m last Wednesday when the wild incident took place.
