Manchester Police/Fire: Deer strike damage nets driver warning

Manchester Police/Fire

MANCHESTER — A driver whose vehicle had struck a deer Tuesday night drew a warning from Essex police — because his headlight was out.

Police received a call indicating that a motorist was driving very slowly along Summer Street.

Police found the vehicle and pulled the driver over at 7:12 p.m., noting that the vehicle was travelling about 20 miles per hour and had heavy front end damage, including a broken headlight.

After stopping the vehicle, police noted animal fur and blood on the hood, according to police.

The officer, however, issued a verbal warning to the driver for continuing to drive the damaged vehicle without a headlight.
