Two men are recovering after they were hurt trying to avoid a herd of deer on a Russell County highway.

It happened around 6:30 a.m Monday on US 281 about 10 miles north of Russell.

According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, a pickup was southbound when it came upon a herd of deer on the highway.

The driver swerved, went off the road and down an embankment, into a dry creek bed.

A 41-year-old man and a 42-year-old man, both from Downs, were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. They were treated for minor injuries and have since been released.
