Deer winds up safe, but car takes a hit

Wildlife on streets continues to be a problem for drivers

A driver who swerved to avoid hitting a deer simply hit something else last week.

At about 11 p.m. on June 19, the driver crashed into a parked vehicle in the 2000-block of Neil Street, damaging its back taillight, fender and bumper. The deer was unharmed.

Oak Bay police warn drivers to be cautious of deer on roads in the municipality, especially after dark.
