Car strikes deer, ending Ore. police chase

The Associated Press

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore.- A police chase came to an abrupt end when the suspect's car struck a deer, Klamath County Sheriff Tim Evinger said. Sheriff's deputies arrested Videll A. Hicks, 57, of Chiloquin after she passed semi-trucks in a no-passing zone before dawn Sunday, Evinger said.

Hicks, who was driving a Chrysler LeBaron on Highway 97, failed to yield to lights and a siren. She continued driving to Lakeport Boulevard before hitting a deer near the Jeld-Wen plant.

"She had no explanation of why she did not stop," Evinger said, adding that the deer was later killed in a humane manner.

Hicks faces charges of eluding a police officer in a vehicle and by foot and resisting arrest. She was being held in lieu of $15,000 bail.

Evinger said alcohol did not appear to be a factor.
