A 27-year-old woman was knocked out by a flying deer while jogging in Virginia.

Yes, that's right.

Krystine Rivera was running by the side of Clairborne Parkway in Ashburn last week when she was hit by an airborne deer, the Washington Post reported.

The deer had been struck by a nearby car.

Rivera told Washington TV station WRC she never saw the deer coming.

"I was running, then I was on the ground and then was listening to the paramedic," she said. "I'm surprised I made it out alive."

Both Rivera and the driver were hospitalized, but the deer did not survive.
