       A freak accident this morning in Gregg county involving a deer. It cost an East Texas man's life. It happened around 9a.m. on FM 2011, that's just south of interstate 20. Troopers say a deer jumped into the path of 76- year old Willie Sanders as he was driving northbound on 2011. The deer crashed through his windshield, hit Sanders in the head, and then crashed through the back windshield.

     Sanders was pronounced dead at the scene. Troopers say he was not wearing a seatbelt.
