Driver struck on I-96 while moving dead deer

FRUITPORT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- A man trying to drag a dead deer from I-96 was struck by another driver Wednesday morning.

The crash happened around 7:40 a.m. in the westbound lanes near Sternberg Road.

Police believe the 50-year-old man struck the deer and stopped to remove it from the highway so other drivers wouldn't run over it. He was then hit by a vehicle driven by an 80-year-old Muskegon County man.

Police found another deer at the edge of the road in the same location; they say removing an obstruction from the road is always dangerous, even for emergency workers.
