Killaloe OPP is urging people to keep their eyes peeled for animals on the road.
Of the 10 vehicle collisions OPP responded to last week, eight were animal related. In one instance, a woman swerved to avoid a deer on Sunday and ended up in a ditch on on McGuey Road. The vehicle was towed.
OPP is urging drivers to exercise more caution during morning and evening commutes. Reducing speed, scanning the road and paying attention to signage helps avoid collisions. OPP says deer also travel in groups, and if you see one, chances are there is another nearby. Police also say to not take unsafe evasive action to avoid animals, as there is a chance it could make the driver loose control of their vehicle.
In other police work this week, Killaloe OPP is investigating two break and enters, one in Pikwakanagan and another in South Algonquin Township.
