Boston Injury Attorneys
Animals can be a common site on roadways all across our state. All drivers have, at some point or another, been faced with a collision or near collision with a deer or other animal crossing the road. Nationwide, over 200 people are killed each year after being involved in an accident with a deer. The trend becomes higher during deer mating season, which typically begins in the fall. Unfortunately, an accident involving a deer can be very hard to avoid as the animals seemingly come from nowhere and appear in front of your vehicle suddenly, leaving you with little or no time to react and avoid the collision.
We will have to wait for any updates on this accident and the extent of the injuries before we can say that the driver walked away unscathed. We are certainly hoping for a quick and full recovery from any injuries that were sustained in the crash.
