HOLT, Minn. - A 45-year-old man was injured Wednesday night by a deer he hit in Marshall County after the animal went through his windshield.

The Minnesota State Patrol and Marshall County Sheriff’s Office responded at 7:51 p.m. to the crash on Minnesota Highway 32 on the south edge of Holt, a Marshall County town about 10 miles north of Thief River Falls.

Steven Ray Gross of Salol, Minn., was southbound on the highway in a 2012 Ford van when he hit a deer that was just struck by a 2000 Chevy Monte Carlo, according to a crash report. The deer went through the van’s windshield and hit Gross, the report stated.

The driver of the Monte Carlo, 20-year-old Douglas Scott Peterson of Thief River Falls, was not injured, but Gross was taken to a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. Both were wearing seat belts and alcohol was not involved.
