Car overturns after trying to avoid deer in the roadway | News
A deer caused an accident that sent two people to the hospital with minor injuries in White County.
Illinois State Police say a juvenile driver was headed northbound on U.S. Rt. 45, about a half a mile north of White County Road 1950N, when a deer entered her lane.
To avoid the deer, the driver swerved to the west, causing her to lose control of the vehicle. The vehicle went off the roadway to the west and traveled down an embankment before overturning.
The driver and a juvenile passenger were both transported to Fairfield Memorial Hospital with minor injuries. State police say both were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash.
