Reindeer On Ohio Highway Saved From Traffic By Patrolman Kevin Starling (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

NORTON, Ohio -- No one spotted Santa Claus, but several drivers say they encountered a reindeer as they drove along a northeast Ohio highway.

Patrolman Kevin Starling grabbed a harness on the reindeer and pulled it out of traffic while an off-duty firefighter stopped oncoming vehicles.

Starling says the reindeer suffered road rash and a broken antler.

Authorities say the livestock truck was headed to a party when it hit a bump and the doors opened, allowing the reindeer to fall out. Officers found the truck and returned the reindeer to its owner.
