A 40-year-old Hastings man needed to be extricated from his vehicle early Saturday in western Wisconsin after rolling his vehicle attempting to avoid a deer, according to Pierce County Sheriff's Office.
Authorities responded after 2 a.m. Oct. 26 to U.S. Highway 10 and 570th Avenue near Prescott on a report of a single-vehicle rollover crash, according to a news release Monday.
