Hunters across the Lake of the Ozarks are gearing up for firearms deer season which begins this weekend. However, there is one way residents don’t want to bag a deer…with their vehicle. That’s what almost happened to two Versailles men last night (Monday). According to the Highway Patrol, 33 year old Brian Bailey swerved to avoid hitting a deer on old Highway 5 at indigo road and went off the right side of the road and struck an embankment. Both bailey and a passenger, 51 year old Ernest Hall were injured in the accident. Hall was taken to an area hospital for treatment.
