Fairfield Police Department responded to a vehicle accident at 10:01 p.m. Thursday on Mint Boulevard. Jacob Oakley Unkrich, 16, of Fairfield, was driving a 2000 Nissan Maxima south on South Park Street where it turns into Mint Boulevard. Unkrich said a deer entered the road, he swerved to miss it, lost control, went off the road to the left, struck an electrical utility pole, breaking it in half. He said he was traveling 34-45 mph. Officer believes Unkrich was driving faster than he said, and noticed his skid marks started well before where he had said the deer entered the road. Officer said it appears Unkrich was traveling well over the posted speed limit and as the road transitions from cement to gravel, he lost control, sending his car into a skid and went off the road. Unkrich was not injured. The car had damages estimated at $10,000 and is totaled. The utility pole damages are estimated at $200. Unkrich was cited for failure to maintain control.
