Doug Billerman knows all about deer accidents.
As an insurance adjuster with Celina Insurance Group, he has handled more accidents involving the swift-moving critters than you can shake an antler at.
The 32-year-old Billerman, a resident of Maria Stein, became a statistic Sunday night when he struck a buck while driving southbound on U.S. 127. The 9:12 p.m. accident occurred just south of state Route 703. [More]
