A 16-year-old Cabool boy was injured Friday morning when he swerved to miss a deer on Highway AD and struck a tree.
Tpr. Terry Nelson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said Brandon C. Andrus, 16, was traveling southbound when he failed to negotiate the curve to avoid the animal and struck the tree.
Andrus, who had minor injuries, was to seek his own treatment. His 2003 Ford F-150 sustained extensive damage. Andrus was wearing a seat belt, Nelson said.
