SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities in northern New Mexico say a 30-year-old man was fatally injured when a deer struck by another motorist was thrown into the car carrying the victim and his mother.

Rio Arriba County Sheriff Tommy Rodella says Benardino "Ben" Archibeque of Brazos was traveling north on U.S. 64/84 near Chama when the accident occurred last weekend.

Rodella says a southbound vehicle hit a deer that sprinted in front of that vehicle, with the impact sending the 200-pound deer flying through the air.

The sheriff says Archibeque was hit in the head and other parts of his body. He died Sunday at a hospital in Albuquerque.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that Archibeque's mother was not seriously injured.

The deer died at the scene.
