An early morning accident occurred on Little Cat Rd when a deer ran across the road. About 7:30 am a red Ford Explorer was heading West on Little Cat road when a deer entered the road way causing the driver to swerve in an effort to miss the deer. The driver then over corrected the Explorer causing it to veer off the right shoulder of the road , turning sideways and sliding through the ditch and a fence and finally coming to rest in some small planted pines.
The Madison County Sheriff’s Department, Madison Fire/Rescue and Madison EMS responded to the scene. The occupants of the Explorer where examined. No injuries were reported. The deer had left the scene before emergency personnel arrived. It is assumed that it had no injuries either. The Florida Highway Patrol was called in to work the accident.
