Deer caused two accidents in two days, about four miles apart, in southern Lancaster County.
The first happened at 5:45 a.m. Thursday on Beaver Valley Pike, south of Main Street, in Willow Street. A few deer ran onto the southbound road, also known as Route 222, causing Robert L. Pitts, 49, of New Providence, to swerve, police said. Pitts' vehicle spun and hit the corner of a nearby barn. A passenger in his car, Beverly J. Pitts, was injured, police said.
The second happened at 6:29 a.m. Friday, on Pennsy Road, west of Kreider Road.
Christopher A. Lowe, 36, of Pequea, was traveling east on Pennsy when a herd of deer crossed the roadway, heading north. Lowe hit a deer, his vehicle spun and hit a tree.n
