DC Councilman Has Close Call With Deer

View Comments ()



    D.C. Councilman Tommy Wells said he is stuck in Minnesota after a run-in with a deer.

    Wells was on vacation in an area north of Minneapolis.

    He said he was driving his wife's Toyota Prius home from dinner when a deer jumped from a wooded area and hit his car.

    The car was totalled, but Wells said he wasn't hurt. No one else was in the car.

    He hopes to return to the District for the start of school next Monday.
