Stockton man ticketed after crash to avoid deer

MAYVILLE – A 19-year-old Stockton man who crashed his car into a tree in Stockton Monday evening was treated at Brooks Memorial Hospital for his injuries and then ticketed for failing to wear a seat belt, Chautauqua County sheriff’s officials said.

Robert D. Keech of Barnes Road, Stockton apparently swerved to miss a deer while driving south down Cemetery Road. His car went into a field off Cemetery Road before he crashed into a tree. He faces court proceedings in several weeks.
