A 31-year-old Kent man escaped serious injury after his car collided with a deer and went off the freeway Thursday night along Interstate 90 about 20 miles west of Ellensburg.
The man was driving a 1994 Chrysler LeBaron eastbound in the left lane when he struck a deer, went into the median and struck a cable barrier, according to a Washington State Patrol report. He was wearing a seat belt. The accident occurred at about 10:12 p.m. Thursday.
Paramedics transported the man to Kittitas Valley Community Hospital in Ellensburg. He was treated and released, said a hospital spokeswoman on Friday.
