Each Time Buck Rushes Across High
way, Striking Cars
New York, Jan. 29.—For the second
time within two months a big buck
•leer has bowled over a runabout on
the highway between Peach Lake and
Brewster, N. Y. In November a
Bridgeport man was driving his ear
along the same road, when a deer
rushed across the highway, struck the
left front wheel and overturned the ma
chine in the gutter, throwing the driver
out. The deer vanished in the woods.
Whilt George Corton, of New Haven,
was driving his^runabout toward Dan-
Imrv yesterday, a buck ran across the
rond and struck the hood of the car,
upsetting it. Corton was bruised.
The deer turned a somersault after
the impact, got to its feet and was last
seen running toward the woods.
It is believed that this deer escaped
from the range of John D. Rockefeller.
