A 50-year-old Tensed woman driving south on U.S. Highway 95 reported seeing a sasquatch chasing a deer on the side of the road late Wednesday night near milepost 367 north of Potlatch, according to the Latah County Sheriff’s Office.
She told the sheriff’s office she checked one of her mirrors to take a second look at the 7- to 8-foot tall “shaggy” object and after she refocused her eyes onto the road the deer ran in front of her. She struck it with her Subaru Forester.
The woman continued driving her damaged vehicle to Pullman to pick up her husband from work. She arrived at the sheriff’s office around 12:30 a.m. Thursday to report the incident. She had previously reported it to the Idaho State Police, but the call was forwarded to the sheriff's department.
A deputy followed the woman out to the scene of the crash, which she said occurred around 11 p.m. Wednesday night, and the deputy requested a case file for a vehicle versus deer collision but the report did not indicate evidence of Bigfoot.
The woman reported neck pain as a result of the collision but she was not transported by emergency personnel.
