Collision with Deer CK20042205
Last night, shortly after 11:00 p.m. police responded to a collision involving a deer on Charing Cross Road near Doyle Line.
Luckily, no one was injured. Total damage was estimated at $5000.
We would like to remind everyone that being aware and taking precautions can reduce collisions, save lives and protect wildlife:
– Scan the road ahead from shoulder to shoulder for any movement.
– Use high beams at night, when possible, and watch for the glowing eyes of animals.
– If an animal is crossing the road, stop as safely as possible, in your lane.
– Remember, if one animal crosses the road, others may follow.
– Never swerve suddenly. This may cause you to lose control of your vehicle, resulting in a more serious collision.
For more information on how to reduce your chances of hitting an animal, please see
