A herd of deer on the road caused a Shenandoah woman to lose control of her car and crash Sunday night, in Page County. Sheriff’s officials say 37-year old Helen Mather was traveling south on 280th Street at around 10:15-p.m., when she swerved to avoid several deer on the road. Mather’s 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix spun around on the road and entered the ditch sideways, before rolling over three times and coming to rest on its wheels in a farm field on the east side of the road. Mather was not injured during the crash, which caused $3,200 damage to her vehicle. No citations were issued.

Earlier that same day, a 2012 Nissan Altima driven by 69-year old Ronald Wilson, of Elcho, WI, struck a deer on Highway Two, just past the 38-mile marker in Page County. The accident happened at around 9:07-a.m.  Neither Wilson nor his passenger were injured. The car sustained $3,000 damage. No citations were issued.
