HUNTERSVILLE, NC (WJZY) - One person has been treated for minor injuries after a deer crashed through their windshield Friday in Huntersville.
The accident happened at 1:20 p.m. Friday, June 3 along Ranson Road.

The area was shut down for approximately 30 minutes.
Just a reminder to always be watchful for deer, even during the day! Luckily the driver was not seriously injured. pic.twitter.com/BXVyKTf95g— North Meck Rescue (@northmeckrescue) June 3, 2016
