Now that deer hunting season is underway, motorists are cautioned to be alert to roaming deer on the highway.
Even before the season opened, an East Lansing police cruiser was totaled when it struck a deer.
The accident occurred Thursday morning in Shiawassee County. Two East Lansing officers were transferring a prisoner from Pontiac to East Lansing.
The officers and prisoner were not injured when the cruiser struck the deer. The deer died.
