BEAVER TOWNSHIP, Pa. (EYT) — According to Clarion-based State Police, around 7:05 p.m. on December 29, a one-vehicle accident occurred on Interstate 80 eastbound, at mile marker 51.8, in Beaver Township, Clarion County.

Police say 24-year-old Blaine J. Fulmer, of Foxburg, was traveling on I-80 East when two deer ran out of the woods from the right side of the roadway coming towards the left lane of travel.

Fulmer steered his car, a 2001 Honda Accord, off the left side of the roadway to avoid hitting the deer, causing him to lose control of the car.

The car then traveled back across the roadway into the right lane and off the right side of the roadway leaving approximately 65 feet of yaw marks before striking a dirt embankment along the right side of the roadway.

The car came to a final rest approximately 10 feet east of where initial impact took place.

Fulmer was using a seat belt and was not injured.
