Did he jump or was he pushed?

That's _always_ the question.

We must rein deer in from this sort of thing.

I was wondering the same thing at first, but it's not so unusual that a deer would do that. If construction or an oncoming car caused the deer to take a deadly detour, then that's exactly what may have happened. It's a miracle that the woman and her children weren't seriously injured or killed.
Exactly. I could easily to see how this could happen...considering deer can and do get spooked by vehicles enough, to actually cut back towards the road... if they don't spot an immediate
escape exit.

Glad everyone was OK. Unfortunately It's not always the case. Deer–vehicle collisions lead to about 200 human deaths and $1.1 billion in property damage every year.
