January 21. 2013 11:14PM

MOULTONBOROUGH - A Massachusetts man was injured Monday when a deer hit by another car was launched into his car, police said.

Stephanie Martin, 20, of Casco, Maine, was heading east on Whittier Highway shortly before 6 p.m. Monday when her car hit a deer that ran out in front of her, Sgt. Scott Fulton said.

Fulton said the deer was "launched" into the air by the impact and came down on the windshield and roof of a car driven by Thomas Deeb, 28, of Walpole, Mass., who was heading west.

"It just folded the roof back," he said.

Deeb's car went off the road and hit several trees, Fulton said. Deeb was taken to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia for treatment of his injuries, he said.

Martin was not injured, Fulton said.
