(Guthrie Center, Iowa) – The driver of a 2010 Mazda suffered suspected minor/non-incapacitating injuries, during a single-vehicle accident Wednesday night, in Guthrie County. The Sheriff’s Office says 35-year-old Joel E. Medrano, of Clive, was traveling east on Iowa Highway 44 at around 8-p.m., when he swerved to avoid a deer that had just been hit by another eastbound vehicle. Medrano’s car went into the south ditch and spun before the rear of the vehicle hit a Cedar Tree. Damage to the car was estimated at $15,000. Medrano was not transported to the hospital.

The earlier accident involved a vehicle driven by 42-year-old Angela Marie Netser, of Hills, Iowa. She was not injured when her 2016 Honda Civic collided with the deer. Damage to her vehicle was estimated at $3,000.
