Police are sending out a reminder to drivers that November is the peak month when the risk of collision is the highest with wildlife after two separate accidents on Saturday in Chatham-Kent.

One collision occurred on Clachan Road and the other near Goodbrand Line in the Municipality of Chatham-Kent. In both instances police report that the deer was able to run off but the involved vehicles sustained significant damage. Both drivers were not injured as a result of the accidents.

Police say that swerving to avoid hitting a wild animal may result in a more serious collision. If hitting a wild animal is unavoidable, they say to try to stay in control.
