Authorities from the Roland Firefighter Department arrived at the scene after reports that a vehicle had hit a deer. What they found was considerably more complicated. The driver of a grey Honda sedan had evidently swerved to avoid a deer in the middle of the traffic lanes of I-40, crashing into a wooden cross and then a large sign welcoming visitors to Oklahoma.

Fortunately, the Honda’s three occupants were uninjured. A post on the fire department’s Facebook page drolly called it “an unfortunate way for Oklahoma to welcome out of state travelers.”
