Pinewald-Keswick Road is now open to regular traffic, following an early morning accident when a motorist swerved to avoid a deer and struck a utility pole in front of police headquarters.
The driver, a Bayville resident, was on his way to work at the time of the crash. He told police a deer ran out in front of his car, Detective Sgt. James J. Smith said earlier today.
The driver was not injured in the accident, he said.
Pinewald-Keswick Road between Double Trouble Road and Dover Road was closed for much of the day after the accident, which happened shortly before 5 a.m., Smith said.
The roadway was closed to traffic, with the exception of township employees coming to work, he said.
