Three motorists hit deer along Route 126 in Yorkville

Three motorists have struck deer while driving along Route 126 over the past week, according to Yorkville police.

Peter N. Sahlas, 75, of the 100 block of River Road, Yorkville, was driving west along Route 126 at Wooden Bridge Drive at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 9, when a deer ran across the highway, striking his car’s driver’s side rear door and breaking a window. The deer “fled the scene,” according to a police report.

Mike Dickey of the 1000 block of Bellflower Lane, Joliet, was driving east on Route 126 near Wooden Bridge Drive at 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, when his vehicle struck a deer that entered the highway.

Sarah Thiens, 21, of the 900 block of Hampton Lane, Yorkville, was driving on Route 126 near Wooden Bridge Drive at 9:14 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 12, when her car struck a deer.

Yorkville Deputy Police Chief Larry Hilt said motorists need to keep an eye out for deer at this time of year, especially when driving through wooded areas.

“This is the prime time for deer to be out wandering around, and motorists need to use extra caution this season,” he said.
