Area motorists beware: Deer are on the loose.

Local law-enforcement officials responded to a number of vehicle-deer crashes on Friday.

At 8:24 a.m., another vehicle-deer accident occurred on Butler Road near Wakeman.

Later at 3:50 p.m. a third deer-vehicle crash occurred on Ohio 61 near Willard.

At 6:41 p.m., a vehicle-deer crash was reported on Mills Road near Plymouth. Neither the driver nor the passenger was injured and the involved person was given the deer.

At 8:24 p.m., An accident was reported where the driver's vehicle struck "an animal of some type" on Butler Road near New London.

At 9:09 p.m., another deer-car crash took place on Ohio 113 near Bellevue.

At 11:16 p.m., yet another vehicle-deer crash was reported, this time on Bullhead Road near Willard.

In the Norwalk city limits, earlier Friday at 7:45 a.m., David W. Deehr, 66, of 21 Milan Manor Drive, Milan, was operating a 2010 Ford Flex that struck a deer at the intersection of U.S. 250 and Elm Street.



It seems that ODNR should be responsible for damages, since they claim the wild animals belong to them.
If I had a hog,horse or cow get hit on the road,I would be resopnsible for damages.

Dr. Information

Hogs, Horses or Cows are not native to this area. They were brought in a long long time ago. What is it, dumba$$ Monday, where everyone posts the most asinine stuff?


Coincidence, but kind of freaky that both deer-vehicle crashes on Butler Rd. occured at 8:24am & 8:24pm exactly 12 hours apart


"Deehr strikes deer" . . . Very interesting!
