  • Deer accidents continue in Saline County, especially on Route 13 near Carrier Mills Road where two deer were struck between last Friday and Saturday.
    At 5:30 a.m. Friday Mallory B. Crittendon of Harrisburg struck a deer while driving westbound on state Route 13 1,000 feet west of Carrier Mills Road, according to a sheriff's accident report.
    At 6:18 p.m. Nov. 3 Tommy Lee Snyder of Zeigler with passenger Russell Bozarth of Herrin struck a deer driving east on state Route 13 9/10 of a mile from Carrier Mills Road.
    Two car versus deer accidents happened Monday night.
    At 5:30 p.m. Kathy Simpson of Eddyville was driving on Davis Road half a mile north of Rister Farm Road in Raleigh Township when a deer ran onto the road from the left and the collision damaged her front bumper.
    At 6:43 p.m. Monday Loren L. Morris of Eldorado was driving south of U.S. Route 45 near Feazel Road when his collision with a deer caused front end damage.
    None of the four accidents involved reported injuries to vehicle occupants.
    All four accidents occurred during periods of darkness or low light when deer are hardest to spot at a distance and when they are most on the move.
    Sheriff Keith Brown says cautious driving is a must now that harvest and fall rutting behavior has deer grazing at roadways or chasing each other, oblivious to oncoming traffic.
