On September 14, Jerad M. Potts, 38 of Paradise, CA was driving his Pontiac Grand AM, northbound on State Route 89 south of Stamphfli Lane. Potts observed a deer jump from the east shoulder and made an unsafe turn towards the left to avoid colliding with the deer. The Grand AM drove across both lanes of traffic and onto the west shoulder into a ditch. Potts continued driving down the ditch and collided into a tree. Both front airbags deployed. Potts was wearing his seatbelt and suffered a minor abrasion to the left side of his face.
