A northern Idaho woman told police she crashed into a deer because she was distracted by a sasquatch in her rearview mirror.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports that the 50-year-old woman was driving south on U.S. Highway 95 on Wednesday when she struck a deer near Potlatch.

She told the Benewah County Sheriff's Office that she saw the beast chasing a deer on the side of the road while driving.

She said she quickly checked one of her mirrors to take a second look at the 7 to 8 foot tall "shaggy" object.

Just as she refocused her eyes on the road, the deer ran in front of her, and she struck it with her Subaru Forester, she told a deputy.

Sheriff's officials marked the incident as a vehicle versus deer collision but did not report any evidence of Bigfoot.

With more information from the Mascow-Pullman Daily News.
