A woman swerved her car to avoid a deer in the road and crashed into a mailbox, a small tree, and a utility pole early Monday, Niagara County Sheriff's Deputy James Haight said.
Stacy L. Schultz, 17, of Hampshire, Tenn., was treated for a leg injury in Newfane Inter-Community Memorial Hospital and released. Haight said the accident occurred at 12:11 a.m. on West Somerset Road, about 500 feet east of Hess Road.
Ms. Schultz said she lost control of her westbound car when she swerved past the deer. The auto went off the pavement and traveled along a ditch before striking the three objects.
