(Wax, KY)-Wildlife is being blamed for an accident that left a man at the hospital and his truck drowning in muddy waters.
Grayson County Sheriff Rick Clemons said 47-year-old Darrell Oberhausen (Shepardsville, KY) was traveling south on KY 479 (Wax Road) when he spotted three deer. The animals ran into his path of travel and Oberhausen cut his steering wheel to the left and lost control of the 1988 Chevrolet C/K 1500 he was driving.
The truck left the roadway and overturned at least once, according to Clemons. The vehicle landed in a pond.
Oberhausen was picked up at Days Pro Bass Shop by Grayson County EMS and transported to an area hospital.
