GOLDEN, Colorado — Imagine this: You’re skateboarding down a hill, going 40 mph, when suddenly, you run into a large deer!

It sounds strange, but that actually happened in Golden, Colorado, this past weekend during the Buffalo Bill Downhill race on Lookout Mountain.

YouTube video of the incident has been viewed over 347,000 times. The clip shows 17-year-old Justin Vitale colliding with the animal, then rolling violently off the side of the road.

Luckily, the teen — and the deer — were reportedly OK after the intense collision.
