Sheriff: Deer triggers crash that injures brothers


HURLEY (WAOW) – A deer running across the road triggered a two-vehicle crash that sent two Pennsylvania brothers to the hospital, according to the Iron County Sheriff's Department.

The brothers, ages 22 and 29, from Philadelphia were driving eastbound on U.S. Highway 2 about 10:30 p.m. Thursday and swerved to avoid hitting a deer, Sheriff Tony Furyk said in a statement Friday.

The sheriff said their car collided with a westbound truck about six miles west of Hurley.

The brothers were taken to an Ironwood, Mich., hospital and later flown to St. Mary's Hospital in Duluth, Minn., the sheriff said. No names were released and their condition was unknown.

The truck driver, a 58-year-old Ontario man, was treated and released.
