BANGOR, Maine — A deer had to be shot by a police officer after colliding with a vehicle on Broadway, near Husson Avenue on Sunday afternoon, Sgt. Dave Bushey of the Bangor Police Department said.

The deer did not die immediately after the incident, so Officer Jason Linkletter shot it away from where people could see it, Bushey said.

There was no further information about whether the vehicle had received any damage or there had been any injuries at 5 p.m. on Sunday
