A woman and a child from Ogden were both hurt in a crash along Interstate 70 in Saline County on Tuesday morning as they swerved to miss a deer.

According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, 51-year-old Irene Booth was driving a 2015  Mazda passenger car, headed west. She swerved to miss a deer, over-corrected, entered into the north ditch and hit a fence and a tree.

Booth and a passenger, 9-year-old Angel Booth, received minor injuries. They were transported by EMS to Salina Regional Health Center. Troopers say that both were buckled up.

The crash happened at 7:45 Tuesday morning, a couple of miles east of the Ohio Street exit in Saline County on Interstate 70.

Do not swerve, it always does more damage just slow down and hit it, this should be taught in driver’s education. Swerving causes more damage and death, the car can handle hitting a non stationary object.
