Local Driver Gets Stuck in Field Swerving to Avoid a Squirrel, With Whom We Have No Deal
A local driver got a warning from State Police over the weekend after getting their vehicle pulled out of an open field.
According to information from the Frackville barracks, the incident happened Saturday afternoon, just after 1:30, along Mountain Road in Blythe Twp. That’s when and where they happened upon an ’03 Mazda stuck in a field. Its front end sustained a little bit of damage but could be driven away.
The driver – who police do not identify – was uninjured.
Now, how did the driver end up in the field? They told police a squirrel was running off the side of the road and they swerved to avoid hitting it.
The driver got a warning for driving off the road and we’re assuming the squirrel got away.
And that squirrel is lucky it got away because, according to George Costanza, we have no deal with the squirrels.
If the squirrel had gotten hit, the driver may have felt compelled to care for the injured animal by taking it to a vet surgeon.
There’d be no guarantees the squirrel would survive either. Surgery would be “costly, difficult, and (the vet) would have to send away for some special, really tiny instruments.”
