Deer Causes Sedalia Teen to Roll Jeep
A Sedalia teenager was injured in a one-vehicle accident that occurred early Sunday morning in Pettis County.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that a westbound 1997 Jeep Wrangler, driven by 19-year-old Tyler W. Gilbertson of Sedalia, was on Route Y, west of Quisenberry Road at 3:30 a.m., when the vehicle traveled off right side of the roadway to avoid a deer that entered its path from the south. The Jeep overturned when it encountered a steep embankment and struck a fence.
Gilbertson suffered minor injuries and sought his own medical treatment.
The Jeep had moderate damage.
