Man killed by deer struck by another

BOSWELL (AP) – State police say a motorist has died after being struck by a deer that was first hit by another vehicle traveling in the opposite direction on a rural southwestern Pennsylvania highway.

Troopers from the Somerset barracks say 56-year-old Ralph Striner of Connellsville was killed when the deer crashed through the windshield of his Chevrolet Equinox and hit him about 1 p.m. Friday.

Police say Striner was westbound on Route 30 in Jenner Township, Somerset County, when an eastbound sport-utility vehicle driven by Lynda Gregg, of Arnold, Maryland, hit the deer, launching it into the path of Striner’s car.

Police say Gregg was not injured.
