Beckys drive safe after crash with deer

A Beckys driver was hit by a deer in her driveway after driving into it on her way home from a nearby park, according to a report.

A spokesman for the Beckys Valley Country Club said the vehicle hit the deer about 6:20pm on Friday.

The deer was found by the club’s wildlife officer in a nearby clearing and was removed to the conservation centre.

The spokesperson said the deer had been on the road for about an hour before the crash, which occurred near the intersection of Westbury Road and Main Street.

He said a large white deer was spotted near the car, but no other animals were involved.

The spokeswoman said the owner of the vehicle had a “serious” injury and was not able to speak further.

A spokeswoman for the County Council said she could not comment on the circumstances surrounding the crash.

She said the driver of the Becky had not been suspended and could be contacted by phone.

A wildlife officer who was with the Beckies said she saw a large deer on the highway about an acre and a half away from the scene.

She was not immediately available for comment.

The spokesman said there was a big group of people around the deer, which had been in the road about 30 metres away, but he did not know if it was a deer sighting or whether it was trying to get away.

The area is popular for horseback riding.
