No injuries were reported following a car-versus-deer accident Friday night, in Montgomery County. Sheriff’s officials say a 2011 KIA Sportage, owned and driven by 55-year old Kenneth Dale Smith, of Shenandoah, was traveling west on Highway 34 just east of Stanton, at around 8:40-p.m. Friday, when a deer ran out of a ditch and into the path of Smith’s vehicle.

Smith was unable to avoid the collision, which resulted in $6,000 damage to his car.
