Deer-related crashes near JP & Old Station dividing area resources

JOHNSON PARK — No injuries were reported this evening, Wednesday, May 29, after a vehicle struck a deer while traveling on SR-299E, just west of SR-89 in the Johnson Park area east of Burney.

Tonight’s deer-related accident happened just 15 minutes after another deer was reportedly struck east of Old Station, in the area of highways 44 and 89. The two, non-injury collisions happened about 30 miles apart.

CHP was notified about the second collision around 9:15 p.m., after a motorist in a Subaru reported hitting a deer. The 911 caller reported the deceased deer and related debris were still in the roadway and that their vehicle was disabled and would need to be towed from the scene.

A tow truck that was requested to the area reported having an extended ETA, due to having been dispatched to the other, earlier deer-related collision near Old Station. The first crash involved a Chevy that was also left inoperable.

As of this report, both accident scenes were still active and CHP is investigating the two collisions.
