An 18 year old motorist, who swerved to miss a deer, went off the road and through a fence at Harney's Nursery Friday morning on South Congress Boulevard.
Central dispatch received the call at 5:08 a.m.
Sergeant Joey Jones of the Smithville Police Department reports that Seth E. Braseel was driving north in a 1996 Ford F-15 when a deer ran out in front of him. Braseel said he didn't know if he hit the deer but to try to swerve to miss it, he did leave the roadway and knocked down a gate and about 30 feet of fence at Harney's Nursery, driving through some mums and shrubs.
Braseel was injured and reportedly transported by DeKalb EMS to DeKalb Community Hospital.
