Photos sent to Boston 25 News show a large hole in the windshield and the deer's body lying in the driver's seat.

"I just heard a bunch of 'errrr' and then a 'bshh' and then the deer just went flying through the window," Zachary Lake said. "I had my backpack on my lap ... so I didn't go flying forward or anything. But there was, like, tons and tons of glass in my bag and everything -- like, all in my hood and in my hair."

According to police, four students and the driver were taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

"(The driver) is amazing. He's always got their safety first. He was just calm and he was telling the kids, 'OK, get out of the bus.' And I don't even think I would've parked the bus that neatly on the side of the road," Lake's mother told WPRI News. "I probably would have crashed if a deer was coming at my face."
