In 2012, an Ann Arbor dentist was killed in a one-car accident Sunday in St. Clair County’s Riley Township after swerving to avoid a deer while driving on Interstate 69, according to reports.

Whitmore Lake resident Peter Drescher, 57, was killed when he swerved his 2004 Oldsmobile Bravada to avoid hitting a deer in the freeway, near Braidwood Road just before 9:30 p.m. Sunday, according to a report from 1380 AM WPHM Radio. Witnesses said the car rolled and Drescher was ejected.

He died at the scene of the crash.
