A teen on his way home from a dance in Griswold escaped injury early this (Sunday) morning, after he swerved to miss a deer and rolled the vehicle he was driving. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office reports Jordan Vetter was behind the wheel of the vehicle owned by Gary Vetter, when a deer appeared on 100th Street just off of Highway 48, at around 12:04-a.m.

The vehicle entered the north ditch and rolled over before coming to rest on its wheels. Authorities say the teen had been traveling at about 45-miles per hour when the vehicle went out of control. It skidded for about 111-feet before entering the ditch, where it traveled another 84-feet before coming to a stop. Damage to the vehicle was estimated at $7,000. No citations were issued.
