SC - Hunter Killed Retrieving Deer Stand From I-95

April 2, 2007 - The Associated Press

ORANGEBURG, S.C. -- Troopers say a Barnwell man has been struck and killed by a vehicle as he tried to pick up his deer stand which had flown out of his truck and on to Interstate 95.

The Highway Patrol says 63-year-old Blake Bishop Junior lost the deer stand around noon Friday when he swerved to miss a bicycle tire on the bridge over Lake Marion.

Troopers say the deer stand was struck by another vehicle as Bishop tried to retrieve it from the highway.

Authorities say Bishop was then struck by a sports utility vehicle that was swerving to avoid the wrecks.
