Bollinger Co. deputy injured after swerving to avoid deer

BOLLINGER COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

A Bollinger County deputy had to be taken to the hospital Tuesday morning after nearly hitting a deer, according to the sheriff's department.

According to Sheriff Darin Shell, the deputy was approaching a bridge on County Road 846 when the deputy swerved to avoid hitting a deer and ran off the road.

Shell says the deputy sustained minor injuries but was released from the hospital and should be back on duty for his next shift.

The deputy is 26-year-old Aaron J. Windings of Marble Hill, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, and the crash happened just after midnight Tuesday.

The Missouri Conservation Department reminds drivers to be on the lookout for deer as they will be more active this time of year due to the approaching deer season, breeding season and the changing weather patterns.
