The police say someone struck a deer near Quinn’s Junction at 5:55 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16. The person hit the deer on S.R. 248 near its intersection with U.S. 40. The site is east of prospector and near the Park City recreation complex.

Deer are commonly seen in the Park City area, and drivers sometimes hit them. Some survive and leap off, but others are either killed in the accident or must later be put down.
