County Police Officer Brown Investigates Car Deer Crashes

October 31, 2011

11/01/11 With the fall season, not only do the leaves fall, and it gets darker faster, the deer begin to move causing more accidents.

County Police Officer Matt Brown investigated several crashes Saturday and Sunday.  The first occurred at 3:40 p.m. on Saturday near the intersection of Muckshaw and 15B Road.  20 year old Chase Lewandowski of Plymouth was traveling west on 15B Road, west of Muckshaw Road in a 2002 Ford F250.  He swerved to miss a deer in the roadway and lost control of the vehicle rolling it over and striking a utility pole.  No injuries were reported although Officer Brown indicated that Lewandowski was traveling too fast for the dirt road.

Just before 8 p.m. Saturday Officer Brown responded to another car deer accident on US 31.  34 year old Jeremy Slate of Lafayette was traveling south on US 31 in a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer when a deer ran into the roadway.  Slate was unable to avoid the collision with the animal.  He was not injured in the crash.

A short time later at 8:28 Officer Brown responded to State Road 8 and State Road 17 for another vehicle crash involving a deer.  36 year old Anne Kelley of Culver was traveling east on St. Rd. 8 west of St. Rd. 17 when a deer ran into the roadway.  Kelley was unable to avoid the collision.  She was not injured in the crash.

Sunday night just after 8 p.m. Patrolman Brown was dispatched to South Michigan Road and Diamond Drive for another accident.  32 year old Sarah Fussey of Plymouth was traveling south on Michigan Road at Diamond Drive in a 2007 Volkswagen. A deer ran into the front passenger side of her vehicle.  There was no way for Fussey to avoid the collision.  She was not injured in the crash
