Aurora Traffic Accidents Caused By Drivers Swerving To Avoid Deer

Deer As A Kane County Traffic Safety Hazard

Deer can present a safety hazard to motorists, especially during certain seasonal periods as well as times of the day.  Commentary regarding this issue, as well as tips provided by the Illinois Department Of Transportation (IDOT) can be seen in this post concerning deer collisions.

The September 12, 2017 Aurora Beacon-News article titled “Deer sightings are on the rise in Aurora, causing wrecks as drivers swerve” discusses two car accidents in Aurora due to drivers swerving to avoid deer, and provides further commentary on the safety issue.  Tips as to how to safely drive in the presence of deer are also provided.

Notable excerpts from the article include:

The concern about deer on the roads comes after two wrecks in Aurora. A West Chicago woman was injured Sept. 2 after she swerved her vehicle to miss striking a deer while driving in Aurora.


Then, on Sept. 6, a North Aurora man was injured in a single-vehicle crash after he swerved to avoid a deer, Aurora police said.

In both instances the accidents led to the drivers being hospitalized.  In the September 6 crash, the man had to be extricated from his car after it collided with various objects and came to rest on its side.
