An attempt to avoid a deer in the road resulted in a rollover accident, and Clarinda woman being sent to the hospital over the weekend, for treatment of possible injuries.

The Page County Sheriff’s Office says 22-year-old Breanna Everett was taken by ambulance to the Clarinda Regional Health Center following the accident on 290th Street just west of the intersection with Wolf Avenue, in southeastern Page County.

Authorities say Everett’s 2004 Chrysler Pacifica was traveling west on 290th when it topped a hill and she noticed deer in the roadway. Everett lost control of the compact utility vehicle while swerving to avoid contact with the deer. The vehicle then entered the ditch and hit a tree on a fence line before rolling onto its top.

The accident happened at around 3:10-p.m. No citations were issued.
