COBLESKILL, N.Y. (AP) — State police say a 21-year-old Massachusetts man has died and three other Ithaca College students were injured in an SUV crash caused when the driver swerved to avoid a deer.
Troopers say the students were heading back to college from their Thanksgiving break on Interstate 88 when the accident happened shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday in Cobleskill, 35 miles west of Albany.
Police say the 2002 Santa Fe rolled several times after the driver lost control trying to avoid a deer that came from the center median.
Michael Clark of Boxborough, Mass., was pronounced dead at the scene.
The three others were taken by ambulance to Albany Medical Center with various injuries.
