Earlier this month in Salisbury, Maryland, a driver collided with a deer, resulting in a fatal accident that claimed one woman’s life and injured another. According to one local news report, the accident occurred on Nanticoke Road in Salisbury at around 6:35 in the evening.
Evidently, the driver of a Nissan Altima was heading westbound on Salisbury Road when she struck a deer. The deer went airborne and crashed into the front windshield of an oncoming vehicle. The deer actually went through the front windshield and hit the driver, who was thrown from the vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency workers. The cause of death was listed as a fatal head injury. It appears that she was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the accident.
The driver of the Altima, the car that initially struck the deer, was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center, where she was treated for minor injuries and released later that evening. Police have declined to press any charges in relation to the fatal accident.
