ELLENBURG, N.Y. (September 24, 2013)--Two people were recovering Tuesday from minor injuries they suffered when a deer jumped through minivan in which they were riding on a northern New York road.
John Perry, 61, of Chateaugay, was driving a Ford Windstar at around 4:45 p.m. Thursday on Route 374 in Ellenburg, near the Canadian border, troopers said.
The deer ran into the road from the left, jumped through the driver's side rear passenger window and landed on a 16-year-old who was sitting in the back seat and then continued through the van's interior and exited through the passenger-side rear window, troopers said.
Perry and the teen were both treated at the Plattsburgh hospital for minor injuries and released.
Troopers say the deer, a six-point buck, died.
