Ramapo officer hits deerPosted: Updated:
Ramapo police have sent out a video to remind people that unexpected things can happen when you are driving.
The video, shot last month, shows a deer darting into the path of an officer's car while responding to an emergency call. The impact killed the deer, but the officer was not hurt.
The video coincides with a weeklong campaign by state police to curb speeding and aggressive driving. Officials say "Speed Week" runs through next Tuesday, August 8.
Troopers will also be on the lookout for distracted or impaired drivers and people who are not buckled up.
