Genesee Driver Swerved To Miss Deer/ Hit Guiderails

Swerved To Miss Deer
A Genesee, PA Driver was not injured Tuesday morning at 5:40 am in Ulysses Township when he swerved to miss a deer, and struck the guide rail on both sides of the road.

Troopers said Darrin P. Hamilton, 24, of Genesee was driving a 2004 Dodge Dakota Pickup south on Route 449, 3/4 mile north of the Village of Gold, when he swerved to avoid a deer in the roadway.

He lost control and struck the guide rail on the western berm of the road, traveled across both lanes of travel, and struck guide rail on the eastern berm. The pickup came to rest about 60 feet from the second point of impact on the eastern berm of the road.

Troopers said Hamilton was not wearing a seatbelt, was not injured, but his vehicle sustained moderate damage and was towed from the scene by Kightlinger Motors of Coudersport.

Summary charges of Driving on Roadways Lanes For Traffic and a Seat Belt Violation were filed at District Court 55-4-03.

Doesn't that just insult to injury? You have an accident - now you have big repair bills - and then get ticketed for it! I don't get it.

Shoulda hit the deer. At least he would get some venison.

Yes, why do people get further punishment for an already traumatic event? Nobody else was involved, so why? My military grandson was at home recently working with his recruiter, reported for work at 5:30a.m. Worked with recruits all day, doing a lot of physical stuff. On his way home, he fell asleep at the wheel and hit a telephone pole and THANK GOD came out without a scratch. The car was totaled. However he was charged with wreckless driving. That charge prevented him from being given a stellar top-dog assignment near Washington DC. Heartbreaking. I hope the officer that stuck this on him reads this. Not even the men and women who serve our country get a break.
