Not-so-dear Deer

March 3, 2011

Another one of our Stafford white-tailed residents contributed to a traffic accident north of Hudson Rd. on the Stafford/Ellinwood Rd. The driver of the pick-up swerved to miss the deer that darted out on the highway. His truck left the roadway and pinballed off a row of trees in the creek bottom, until he ran into a tree that was not in allignment with the others.

Luckily the ground was heavy with sand and the roots of the big tree gave way after the collision, collapsing the tree. Regardless, there was heavy damage to the truck. The driver was transported to Stafford Hospital with minor injuries.

Words of caution – slow down through the wooded areas in the County!
