Deer cause three area accidents

Rockdale area drivers mostly behaved themselves during the holiday week but couldn't get the same kind of cooperation out of the area's four-footed residents.

Deer caused three of the four accidents investigated in South Milam by DPS troopers during the week.

No injuries were reported in any of the wrecks.

Trooper Broderick Sims said a vehicle driven by Tanya Schroeder, 18, of Sealy hit a deer at 10:10 p.m. Nov. 23 on US 190, one-half mile west of Griffin Chapel.

Vehicle damage was termed moderate.

Moderate damage was also reported at 6:22 p.m. Thursday in a vehicle-deer accident on FM 2095, 6.9 miles north of Milano.

Trooper Donald Delukie Jr. listed the driver as David Sexton, 63, of Spring.

Moderate to extensive damages were reported in a third vehicle-deer accident at 7:55 p.m. Saturday on Texas 36, 1.6 miles south of Milano.

Trooper Mark Berry listed the driver as Rachel Villanueva, 26, of Moody.

The only Rockdale-area nondeer accident investigated by the DPS during the week was a two-vehicle collision at the FM 908-County Road 318 intersection, two miles south of Rockdale at 5:15 p.m. Nov. 24.

Sims listed drivers as John Santellano, 58, and Travis Slusher, 18, both of Rockdale.

Damages to both vehicles were termed minor.
