MARBLE HILL, Mo. (AP) - A southeast Missouri deputy is recovering from minor injuries after swerving to avoid a deer and crashing his squad car.

KFVS-TV (https://bit.ly/1uZLPIY ) reports that 26-year-old Bollinger County deputy Aaron Windings of Marble Hill was injured early Tuesday. Sheriff Darin Shell says the deputy was approaching a bridge on a county road when a deer moved into the roadway. Windings swerved and ran off the road.

He was taken to a hospital for treatment and is expected to make a full recover.

The Missouri Department of Conservation warns that deer are most active this time of year due to the approaching hunting season, breeding and changing weather patterns.
