  A collision with a deer Thursday ended up with the driver not hurt but thoroughly soaked when his truck ended up in a pond.


  About 1 p.m. Thursday 62 year old George Archer of Twin City was driving his truck on U.S. Highway 80 west of Portal near Pleasant Hill Church Road when he struck a deer that ran out into the road.  Archer told Georgia State Patrol First Class Blake Hendrix and Bulloch County sheriff's deputies he then lost control of the truck and ran into a pond. 


  When officers arrived they found him standing on top of the2013 Ford F-150 truck which was partially submerged in about 5 feet of water.  He was rescued from the pond wet and cold but uninjured.  No word on the deer's condition.
