EUREKA, Mo. (AP) - A 17-year-old Eureka High School senior has died from injuries suffered in a car wreck, marking the third time in just over one year that the school has lost a community member to a roadway fatality.

KTVI-TV (bit.ly/1udOvEO ) reports that Natalie Timm, a member of the school’s soccer and dance teams, died after losing control of her car Sunday night while driving home from her job at St. Alban’s Country Club. Police told the family she may have been trying to avoid a deer.

The fatal wreck follows the August 2013 deaths of Eureka student Kathleen Oliver and her older sister Lauren, who had graduated the previous year.

In May, 27-year-old study hall teacher Will Gillespie died in a motorcycle crash in front of Eureka High after leaving the school.
