The Barton County Sheriff’s Office responded to five car/deer crashes overnight Tuesday, Sheriff Brian Bellendir said. None of the accidents resulted in injury.
“This is an unusually high number for a single night. Normally deer are not as active this time of year,” he said. “It is possible the recent flooding may have destroyed habitat and the animals are on the move.”
The sheriff advised drivers to use caution when traveling in the late evening and during the night-time hours.
