SISTERS, OR -- A Terrebonne woman received minor injuries when a deer crashed through her windshield on Highway 20, Monday morning. Oregon State Police say the 79-year-old driver escaped serious injury because the deer's horns struck the steering wheel, stopping it from further entering the SUV.
Vona Huggins says the deer ran in front of her vehicle just west of Sisters at about 7:30 a.m. The animal was killed in the collision; Huggins was taken to St. Charles Redmond for treatment.
ODOT reminds drivers that October is peak deer migration season, with the most deer versus vehicle collisions than any other month.
