ABC – 17 — A 16-year-old Jefferson City  driver crashed his SUV on Tuesday night when he swerved to avoid a deer in the road, police say.

The crash happened in the 3700 block of West Edgewood Drive and the driver had moderate injuries. The SUV went off the road, through a barbed-wire fence, hit a tree, rolled over and came to rest on the driver’s side in a creek with about 6 inches of water, police said.

Firefighters extricated the teenager and he was taken to a Columbia hospital with moderate injuries. Police said he was not wearing a seat belt.
