Woman Dies After Car Crash with Deer

Posted:

DELAWARE CITY, Del. (AP)- A woman has died after the car she was riding in struck a deer.
    
Delaware State Police say the crash happened Sunday evening on Route 9, near Delaware City, when an antlered male deer darted into the path of a car. The animal crashed through the windshield, striking the passenger, 48-year-old Jamie Episcopo. The driver drove to the Delaware City firehouse for assistance.
    
Police say paramedics took Episcopo to Christiana Hospital, where she died Tuesday.
    
The State Game Commissions is urging drivers to stay alert, as this is the height of deer mating season, when the animals are more likely to be crossing roads to get to each other.
