NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A truck driver suffered minor injuries after swerving to avoid a deer and overturning off the road on State Highway 21 in Nacogdoches County

The responding trooper said Malcolm Wing, 64, was driving on Highway 21 to Dew to deliver wood chips when he swerved to avoid a deer about five miles west of Nacogdoches. The wet road contributed to him going off the road and into a ditch.

Wing was taken to a Nacogdoches hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
