    at deer, hits truck

    MONKTON ó Someone took an illegal shot through their truck window at a deer early Wednesday, but hit another vehicle on the road instead, police said.

    Michael Deforge, 30, of Essex Junction told Vermont State Police he was driving on the Monkton-Vergennes Road after midnight when he came upon another truck that had stopped for a deer that crossed the road.

    The driver of the other truck shot at the deer but missed and hit Deforgeís truck instead, police said.

    The shooter then fled, driving northeast on the road, according to Deforge, who was uninjured.

    Police did not release a description of the truck but said Deforge had provided details of the other vehicle.

    Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call state police at 388-4919.
