These days, if you are driving around Cherokee County, be very cautious of deer jumping and running in front of your vehicles. My brother-in-law, Pat Dreps, had a deer collision last week and his son Sam, who is my nephew, also hit a deer this past week. Both of their trucks suffered significant damage.
It doesn’t matter where your driving, as they can even run into your vehicles in parking lots. This is the time of year deer will be moving night and day, so be extra careful when driving down the road. According to State Farm, 1 in 131 Alabamians will be involved in a deer collision that could total your vehicle or injure a passenger.
Stay alert. If a collision does occur, pull over and dial 911. Be careful out there.
