HOUSTOWN TOWNSHIP, Minn. – A deer on the road caused a two-vehicle collision Sunday in Houston County.

The Minnesota State Patrol says 60-year-old Esther Marie Oldenburg of Jackson was driving on Highway 16, west of Houston, when she braked to avoid hitting a deer. Oldenburg was struck from behind by the vehicle driven by 35-year-old Michael Melvin Hayner of Preston.

Both drivers were transported to Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center in La Crosse, Wisconsin for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Both were wearing their seat belts.

The State Patrol says this accident happened around 5:30 pm Sunday. The Houston County Sheriff’s Office, Tri-State Ambulance, and Houston Ambulance assisted at the scene.
