An accident involving a deer has claimed the life of one man in Oklahoma.

According to the Oklahoma DPS, the wreck happened Thursday morning around 7:30 a.m. on U.S. Highway 64 about 3/4 of a mile north of Guymon.

He was driving a 1987 Chevrolet corvette southbound when he swerved to miss a deer but ended up hitting the deer.
