Units arrived and located a white 2009 Toyota Corolla on its tires with heavy damage. Deputy Nathan Rankin located the driver, 22 year old Megan Walstrom of Madison, who stated she had swerved to miss a deer and lost control of the vehicle which had rolled an unknown amount of times before landing back on its tires.
