ELLENBURG, N.Y. (AP) - State police say two people are recovering from minor injuries suffered when a deer jumped through their minivan as they traveled on a northern New York road.
Troopers say 61-year-old John Perry of Chateaugay was driving a Ford Windstar around 4:45 p.m. Thursday on Route 374 in the Clinton County town of Ellenburg, near the Canadian border.
Police say a deer ran into the road from the left, jumped through the driver's side rear passenger window and landed on a 16-year-old sitting in the back seat. Troopers say the deer continued through the van's interior and exited through the passenger-side rear window.
Perry and the teen were both treated at the Plattsburgh hospital for minor injuries and released.
Troopers say the deer died.
