"They swerved to miss the deer instead of striking the deer and as a result they ran off the right side of the roadway, lost control and over-turned their vehicle and it resulted in incapacitating injury," OHP Troop F. Capt. Ronnie Hampton said. Both motorists, Hampton said are in stable condition.

"They generally occur either early in the morning hours or in the late evening hours," Hampton said.
Noble Foundation wildlife and range consultant "russell stevens" says accidents like these are more common in the Fall because October through December is deer mating season. "During that time frame the bucks are actively searching for does to breed and so they move a lot more during that time frame than any other time during the year," Stevens said.
Hampton shared some tips that can help reduce a motorists chances of hitting a deer, or becoming injured in a collision. "Reduce your speed and when you see those animals especially on two lane roads with no shoulder where you have no place to go, don't depart the roadway to avoid striking a deer," he said.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol Capt. Ronnie Hampton said the semi crossed the median and veered into the southbound lanes, striking the bus. He said three women from the team died at the scene and a fourth died at a hospital in nearby Sulphur.
Hampton said the team's coach, who was driving the bus, declined treatment at the scene and escaped without serious injury. He said 15 other bus passengers were hurt, as was the driver of the tractor-trailer, who was expected to survive. The extent of the surviving team members' injuries wasn't known yet.
The front end of the team bus was virtually untouched, but the sides of the vehicle were heavily damaged. Troopers and witnesses said the driver's side of the bus sustained the worst damage.
Hampton said that after the truck struck the bus it kept going and went off the side of the road.
"We knew we had a two-vehicle accident by what we saw at the scene. ... But it took about an hour before we found the semi," he said.
The National Transportation Safety Board said Saturday that it was sending a team of investigators to the site.
Hampton said the Highway Patrol's investigation should take several weeks.
"Right now, it's being investigated like a homicide," Hampton said, adding that both drivers will undergo standard toxicology tests. Hampton said details of the crash were still not known but "something happened to cause [the semi-tractor driver] to depart the roadway and impact the other vehicle."
He said the accident will remain under investigation for several weeks.
