Third Deer Accident Reported in less than 24 hours

IMG_7645Fort Collins motorists should keep a look out for wildlife on the road after a series of incidents involving deer were reported in less than 24 hours. At approximately 5:30 p.m. a deer was struck and killed when it ran through busy traffic in an attempt to cross Prospect Rd., just west of Shields St.

“It literally came out of nowhere,” Anna Kuhns, a senior art major, said.


Kuhns was driving home from school in busy traffic when she struck the animal traveling at approximately 40 miles per hour.

According to Rick Olthoff, a Fort Collins community police officer that responded to the scene this is his third deer accident since last night.

“I don’t know if it’s the warm weather or what,”Olthoff said. “I haven’t had a deer accident in years.”

Olthoff has been a community officer for 11 years.

The two prior accidents occurred at noon earlier today and at one in the morning, one on Shields St. near Rolland Moore Park and the other near the intersection of Taft Hill Rd. and Falcon Dr.
