Was driving on errands early this afternoon. Turned onto Main St. from Kings Road and saw two police cars and a car pulled off. First thing I thought was license check so I quickly put my seat belt on! Got closer, though, and saw it was Jim Allen -- a fellow Rotarian and former candidate for Shelby mayor. Then I noticed the damage to the front of Jim's car.
In the middle of the day a deer cantered across the road right into Jim's path. It struck his car and did significant damage.
I had great appreciation for this since the exact same thing happened to my wife on Wyke Road in front of the Y last spring on a school morning.
I think the new development on Kings Road has really put some pressure on these deer. They're everywhere!
Anyway, Jim looked fine.
Watch out for those deer.
