Driver rolls truck after hitting deer

Posted

A 54-year-old Stanwood man was injured when his 1997 Ford Explorer hit a deer on Highway 104 Thursday night.

The driver was heading west on Highway 104 and was near Milepost 6, west of Beaver Valley Road, just after 8 p.m. Sept. 23 when a deer walked onto the road and the man swerved to avoid striking the animal.

The Ford hit the deer, then went into the ditch and rolled multiple times on the side of the road before it came to a rest, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The crash was caused by the driver having his wheels off the roadway, the State Patrol said, and he will be charged for the violation.

The driver was taken by an aid unit to St. Michael Medical Center - Silverdale for treatment.

The Ford was impounded and towed from the scene by All City Autobody & Towing.
