Between a Deer and a Wet Place

SUV winds up in stream after driver avoids deer

POTOMAC, Md. -- A man who swerved to avoid hitting a deer with his Ford Explorer ended up in Watts Branch.

The driver, Joseph Judge, was able to escape the SUV through the passenger window and make it to shore after crashing into a few feet of water along Piney Meetinghouse Road in Potomac Thursday afternoon.

Judge is OK, but there was extensive damage to his SUV, which was difficult to pull from the water.

The deer escaped without injury.
