WINNESHIEK COUNTY (KWWL) -

The Winneshiek County Sheriff's Office says a deer helped lead to a crash with a semi and a jeep.

The crash happened Wednesday evening on Highway 9 near the Howard and Winneshiek County line.

Investigators say a jeep driven by Nicholas Pierce, 30, had to stop quickly to avoid a deer - that was crossing the highway - fell in front of his car.

Pierce allegedly slammed on the brakes, and the semi behind, driven by Amil Felper, 57, tried to stop in time, but ended up rear-ending the jeep, causing $6,500 in damage.
