A Norwalk driver's truck was towed from the scene after he swerved to miss a deer Friday morning.

James Holiday, 38, of 3 Foxmoor Court, was northbound on Ohio 61 north of Ohio 162 about 7:15 a.m.

"He swerved to miss some deer that were in the road. He went down into a ravine. He hit some trees in the ravine," Huron County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Ted Patrick said.

Witnesses who saw the deer verified what happened, he said.

Patrick said paramedics treated Holiday for facial cuts at the scene, but he refused to transported to a hospital.

Wilcox Garage towed the damaged 2006 GMC truck from the scene.

The sheriff's office forwarded a report about the crash to the Norwalk Law Director's Office for the consideration of filing a charge of failure to control.
