A Jefferson City man was moderately injured Saturday night trying to avoid a deer in the roadway, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Shawn Shivelhood, 32, of Jefferson City, was driving a 2013 Dodge Dart southbound on Route B in Cole County. Shortly after 10 p.m., about 1,900 feet north of Lower Bottom Road, he swerved to avoid hitting a deer and traveled off the right side of the roadway, striking a sign and several trees before overturning.

The vehicle was totaled and Shivelhood, who was wearing a seatbelt, received moderate injuries. He was transported by ambulance to Capital Region Medical Center in Jefferson City.
