Rainy-morning wreck

This morning’s rain contributed to a minor single-vehicle accident on Newcastle Road. The driver, Bobby Teal, was driving on Newcastle and told police that a deer ran in front of his vehicle. Teal told officers he attempted to avoid the deer, which caused his vehicle to spin and end up in a rain-swollen ditch.
