Berks Firefighters in Animal Road Warning
Berkshire Fire & Rescue are asking drivers to take extra care and be alert for wildlife on the roads as the weather warms up.
The warning comes after a driver suffered head and chest injuries after swerving to avoid a deer in Black Park, near Langley, on Monday morning.
He was cut from his car (pictured below) by firefighters and taken to hospital by ambulance.
Adam Stevens, Station Commander at Langley Fire Station, explained:
“With Spring in the air, larger animals such as deer, foxes and badgers are on the move.
“We are asking drivers to keep on the lookout in rural areas, or in urban areas with woodland or parkland and to keep their speed down, especially at night.
“It is impossible to predict when a deer or other animal may cross the road in front of you but you have a better chance of avoiding it safely if you are driving at a sensible speed and take note of any signs or warning notices regarding animals, especially in country areas.”
