Chain reaction accident involving a deer leaves one person dead

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW COUNTY (WJRT) -

(11/20/12) - Police are still investigating what they're calling a "freak" car accident in Saginaw County.

Dixie Highway near Birch Run Road was shut down for several hours Tuesday evening after a deadly car-deer crash.

State police say a car hit a deer, the deer went air-born and smashed through the wind shield of a second car.

The deer went straight through that car and out the back window, then a third car hit the deer.

There were two people inside the second car. Thirty-five-year-old Amanda Gibbs was killed, and her husband, Phillip Gibbs - who was behind the wheel - is in critical condition.

The rest of the people involved in the chain-reaction accident have non-life threatening injuries.
