A 59-year-old rural Lawrence man and volunteer firefighter was injured early Sunday after his car struck a deer while he was headed to the Kanwaka Township fire station.

Robert Rombach was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital after his 2012 Chevrolet Camaro was damaged in the crash at 4:55 a.m. Sunday in the 1600 section of County Road 1029 west of Lawrence. Rombach was responding to the station for a house fire in Kanwaka Township.

Belinda Rehmer, an LMH spokeswoman, said Monday that Rombach was treated and released.
