ELLENBURG, New York (AP) — Police say two people are recovering from minor injuries suffered when a deer jumped through their minivan as they traveled on a northern New York road.

Troopers say 61-year-old John Perry, was driving near the Canadian border when a deer ran into the road from the left, jumped through the driver’s side rear passenger window and landed on a 16-year-old sitting in the back seat. Troopers say the deer continued through the van’s interior and exited through the passenger-side rear window.

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.
