Driver-deer collisions reported in Park City

The Park City Police Department last week logged at least three cases involving drivers hitting deer and another one that apparently was a collision.

Deer are plentiful in the Park City area, and the Police Department occasionally receives reports about collisions.

On Friday, Dec. 18 at 3:39 p.m., a driver hit a deer somewhere along Marsac Avenue. The vehicle did not stop and public police logs did not provide details about the condition of the deer.

At 5:51 p.m., on Wednesday, Dec. 16, a vehicle-deer collision was reported in the vicinity of the intersection of Kearns Boulevard and Wyatt Earp Way. The accident scene partially blocked eastbound traffic, the police said.

On Tuesday, Dec. 15, a transportation company bus hit a deer at or close to the intersection of Bonanza Drive and Deer Valley Drive at 12:21 a.m. It was not immediately clear whether the animal was killed.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, Dec. 17, a hurt deer was seen somewhere along Annie Oakley Drive at 6:19 p.m. It might have suffered a broken leg, the police were told. Public police logs did not provide details about whether the injury was caused by a collision with a vehicle.
