A DeWitt County came away from a vehicle, deer accident with no injuries Monday night.
According to DeWitt County Sheriff Jered Shofner the accident occured in rural DeWitt County after the officer had wrapped up a vehicle roll over investigation. The Sheriff indicates the deputy was fortunate to come away unscathed.
The Sheriff says the accident leaves the department in a tough situation because while the vehicle was one of the oldest in their fleet, they were hoping to get some more use out of it before replacing it.
The Sheriff indicates any time one of their deputies are involved in a vehicle accident, they consult outside help in the investigating process so the Clinton Police Department was the responding agency in this case.
