This is what I’ve been worried about lately, after having several near misses with deer, a moose, and even a big old bull elk lately; a motorist was killed this morning when his pickup collided with a deer north of Newport on state Highway 20.

The Cusick man died when the deer crashed through the windshield of his pickup.

Again, there’s really nothing you can do to prevent an accident like this except to slow down in rural and semi-rural areas. The deer are coming out of the woodwork right now so if you’re going a little slower and being observant, you may be able to hit the brakes in time if one darts out in front of you.
