Undersheriff urges caution during peak of vehicle-deer crash season

The peak season for vehicle-deer crashes is upon us.


Several non-injury crashes and one injury crash have been reported in Lyon County this month. On KVOE's Morning Show this week, Lyon County Undersheriff John Koelsch said people need to fight the natural action of swerving if a deer bounds across their path.

This past summer, a motorcycle driver suffered significant but not life-threatening injuries when several deer crossed his path. Koelsch says people now need to be watchful for deer at all times of day, not just around dusk, and at all times of year instead of the peak fall and spring seasons because there are more deer now in Kansas than there were several years ago.
