Deer causes wreck
A driver escaped injury when he swerved to miss a deer and went off of the road. The accident happened on Adair Road, four miles east of Lewisport on September 15 at approximately 12:30 p.m. Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Aaron Emmick filed the accident report.
Scotty L. Cumpston of Lewisport told Emmick that as he drove south on Adair Road in his 2014 GMC Acadia, a deer ran into the path of his vehicle. He swerved to miss the deer, went off of the right side of the road and hit a ditch and culvert before coming to a stop.
The vehicle sustained moderate damage. A wrecker from Bob’s Garage towed the SUV from the scene.
