N.D. Insurance Commissioner, AG Escape Injury in Deer Crash

October 15, 2008

North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says he and Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm escaped injury when Stenehjem’s sport utility vehicle struck a deer while the two were on their way to a political meeting.

The afternoon collision on Oct. 12 happened near Anamoose. Stenehjem said a large buck ran from a corn field along the highway and suddenly turned in front of the SUV.

Stenehjem said he braked but still struck the animal’s left hindquarters. He said the deer ran into another field and probably died.

Stenehjem said the SUV’s left headlight was knocked out but the Cadillac still was drivable. He said he and Hamm canceled their appearances in Rugby and headed back to Bismarck, where he reported the crash.
