Westlake Driver Misses Deer, Slams Garage

A Westlake driver swerved to miss a deer along Walter Road on June 13 and ended up inside the garage of a nearby home.

The incident occurred when the 36-year old North Olmsted female, in an effort to avoid hitting the deer, swerved. She hit the deer anyway. And, to make things worse, instead of stepping on the brake, she hit the accelerator. The reflex action caused her 2015 GMC Acadia to crash into the garage of the Walter Road home.

The woman was transported to Fairview Hosptals by North Olmsted Fire Dept. for non-incapacitating injuries. Two women who were inside the house were also unhurt. A 2010 Jeep in the garage was also damaged.
