A car that hit two deer on Route 206 in Montgomery shut down the road during Thursday's morning commute and killed the driver.

 

One of the deer went through the windshield of a southbound pickup driven by David W. Snook, 57, of Bridgewater around 6:25 a.m and hitting him before going out the back window according to a press release issued by Montgomery Police.

The 2006 Dodge Ram crossed onto the northbound side near Sunset Road and hit the guardrail and a sign before falling into a ravine about 500 feet from impact.

Snook was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital wher he died of his injuries according to the report.

The roadway was reopened in both directions around 11:00 a.m.

New Jersey Fast Traffic's Bob Williams reports the alternate route during the morning commute  that took drivers onto Route 601 quickly filled with traffic.
