RATCLIFF, Texas - A freak accident left a man hospitalized on Friday after he was apparently stabbed by antlers. Authorities say Paul Nash, 45, and girlfriend Gayla File were driving on Highway Seven from Ratcliff when they hit a deer.

File called 911 as Nash got out of their pickup to check the vehicle's damaged headlight and clear debris from the roadway.

Officials believe another vehicle came along and hit the dead animal or part of the mangled remains. The antlers apparently flew up and stabbed Nash in the side.

An official at East Texas Medical Center in Tyler said Nash is in fair condition in the intensive care unit.

The Department of Public Safety says the driver of the second vehicle didn't stop.

Houston County officials believe another vehicle came along, hitting the dead animal or part of the mangled remains. The antlers apparently flew up and stabbed Nash in the side.

Ratcliff is about 135 miles southeast of Dallas.
