Deer through windshield kills western Pa. woman

Updated:

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. (AP) - State police say a deer struck by a vehicle crashed through the windshield of another vehicle headed in the opposite direction, killing a western Pennsylvania woman who was riding in the second car.

Troopers from the Butler barracks say the dead woman is Carol Mitch, of Butler. They didn't immediately release her age.

Police say the incident happened about 6:20 p.m. Sunday when a car traveling south on Route 8 in Brady Township hit the deer. The driver and passenger in that care weren't hurt.

But the deer was knocked into the path of a northbound car driven by Raymond Mitch, of Butler. Police say the driver wasn't hurt, but that his front-seat passenger was killed and that a female riding in the back also suffered minor injuries.

Police were still investigating Monday.
