After officers responded Monday to two separate car accidents involving deer, Caledonia police are reminding drivers to be careful on area roadways while deer are active.

CAPD posted on their Facebook page that officers responded at 5:32 p.m. to two locations for reports of car vs. deer accidents; the 5000 block of Highway 38 and Highway 31 near Valley Road.

There were no injuries to the occupants of the vehicles, but the deer in both incidents did not survive.

“The deer are active this time of year, especially at sunrise and sundown,” officers posted. “Always remember to wear you seatbelt and be on the look out for the deer.”
