WORTHINGTON -- State police say an Indiana County man died this morning after his car hit the carcass of a deer that was knocked into his lane by another car, causing the victim's car to crash into a tri-axle truck.

Troopers in Kittanning have yet to release the name of the 34-year-old Homer City man killed Thursday about 5:20 a.m. on Route 422 in West Franklin Township, Armstrong County. That's about 35 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

Police say the deer was first hit by an eastbound car, sending the carcass into the westbound lanes. There the victim's car also hit the animal, went out of control, then smashed into the eastbound truck.

The passenger in the dead man's car has been taken to a Pittsburgh hospital with serious injuries. Police say the truck driver also was treated. breaking - neigh_north
