(La Porte County, IN) - Several collisions between motor vehicles and deer have occurred recently including one where a driver rolled several times.
La Porte County Police said Mauricio Loza, 20, of Westville was traveling on Indiana 2 near 600 West before 1 a.m. Sunday.
Loza said he swerved to avoid a deer and lost control of his 2005 Chevy Tahoe, which left the road and flipped several times before coming to rest on its side in a cornfield.
Loza complained of pain but refused medical attention.
His vehicle was a total loss in the crash.
This is the time of year when collisions with deer happen more frequently because they’re on the run more often from mating season.
Deer are also trying to find new places for cover from corn in the fields being harvested.
