A woman from Austin died after a deer struck by another vehicle crashed through the windshield of the S-U-V she was riding in Thursday evening.

The driver of the vehicle that hit the deer told deputies it came out of a ditch and ran onto a rural road just north of Austin.   He says the impact “vaulted the deer into the air” and it crashed through the front window of the SUV just as the two vehicles were going past each other.  The 58-year-old victim was airlifted to a Rochester hospital where she later died of her injuries.
