A Maine State Police officer received quite the surprise over the weekend following a response to a car crashing into a deer on Interstate 95 outside of Portland Saturday morning.
The department shared the following story on their Facebook page;
“While assisting with a car-deer accident in Fairfield, Tpr. Tyler Maloon found out that the driver and passenger had some interesting cargo that they were transporting to Bangor. Here’s what Tpr. Maloon wrote;”
“So, I cover a car deer crash in Fairfield and end up giving the operator and his wife a ride to the Pittsfield Irvings. As we’re driving they begin talking about an event they’re going to at the Cross Insurance Center, stating “the trophy” has to be there at such and such a time, and that they’ll have to head back after for opening day at Fenway for a presentation there. Naturally, I ask what trophy. They then tell me that he works for the Patriots and that the Lombardi Trophy is in my cruiser! My mind was blown, seriously what are the odds! A story for the ages!”
According to WCSH in Portland, the couple involved in the crash along with the Lombardi trophy are safe and sound and made it to their destination.
