WILLIAMSPORT — A man was taken to Meritus Medical Center with nonlife-threatening injuries Sunday morning after the vehicle he was driving on Interstate 81 near Williamsport hit a large doe, according to an email from Scott Bragunier, spokesman for Williamsport Volunteer Fire & Emergency Medical Services.

The man was driving south on I-81, just before the U.S. 11 exit, when the vehicle hit and killed the doe, Bragunier said. The vehicle’s airbag deployed, he said.

The accident near Maryland’s exit 2 for I-81 was reported at 6:53 a.m. Sunday, according to Washington County Emergency Services.

One lane of the interstate was shut down briefly, Maryland State Police said.

No further information was available.
