(5/26/14) Two people from Eau Claire were killed over the holiday weekend in separate deer collisions in different parts of Wisconsin.
A 69-year-old Eau Claire man died late Sunday night, after his motorcycle struck a deer on a road south of Eau Claire in the town of Washington. On Memorial Day, a 54-year-old Eau Claire man was riding in the front seat of a car that hit a deer. That happened around 11:30 a-m in Jefferson County on Interstate-94 near Watertown. The State Patrol said the car struck the deer head-on, and the animal smashed through the windshield. Names of both victims were not immediately released.
