Thu 7-3-2014

(Graettinger)-- Minor injuries were reported in a single-vehicle crash early this (Thurs.) morning just west of Graettinger.

The Palo Alto County Sheriff's Office says Lisa Brunskill of Graettinger was eastbound on a county road when she swerved to avoid a deer that was in the roadway. Authorities say Brunskill then over-corrected, causing her to lose control. The vehicle slid sideways before the driver side tires caught the on the road, causing the vehicle to roll onto its side.

Brunskill sustained only minor injuries.

$5,000 in damage was estimated to a 2002 Chevrolet Blazer she was driving.

The crash took place shortly after 1:00 a.m.
