An elderly woman got a scare Wednesday morning when the opposing side windows of her GMC Yukon shattered while she was driving on County Road 21 between White Earth village and Richwood.


Virginia Christensen, 81, was shaken up but not injured in the incident, said her stepdaughter, Barb Christensen.

A deer ran into the side of the Yukon, but the family thinks the window was actually shattered by a bullet fired by a hunter pursuing the deer.
