(KAIR)--Although their most active season has past, deer remain a constant on local, Kansas roadways, causing a hazard to area motorists, as a group of teens learned this week.

According to a release from Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie, 17-year-old Liam Hall, of Cummings, was westbound/southbound on U.S. Highway 59, around 8:20 Monday night, when a deer was encountered in the roadway.

Hall swerved to avoid the deer as it crossed the highway near Haskell Road, with Hall's Chevrolet Suburban crashing into the ditch, north of the highway.

Hall, and his two 17-year-old passengers, were assessed at the scene by Atchison County EMS but were not transported for hospital care.

Deer movement is at its highest during the annual rut, or mating season, which runs from October through December.
