He stated a 2004 Dodge Stratus, registered to Laura and Michaela Ehmke and driven by Isaiah T. Ehmke, 18, all of Waterloo, passed him and cut back into the slow lane.
As it did, he said, it suddenly braked and, though he attempted to avoid it, he struck the Stratus in the rear.
Isaiah Ehmke stated he didn’t remember passing the semi and that he saw several deer crossing the road and slowed to avoid them.
A southbound witness said he saw the deer cross the highway just as the accident occurred.
Salisbury complained of dizziness and head pain. As is standard procedure, the truck driver submitted to a drug and alcohol test, which was negative. Ehmke complained of head and back pain. A passenger in the Ehmke car, Kelby L. Park, 18, Auburn, complained of shoulder pain. Ehmke and Park were trapped inside the Dodge, and Park had to be extricated. All three were transported to the hospital by ambulance.
Damage was estimated between $2,500 and $5,000.
