Study: Wisconsin ranks 7th for number of deer-car collisions

A recent study compiled by State Farm Insurance, the second largest passenger vehicle insurance provider in Wisconsin, using claims data and accident reports from the Federal Highway Administration, shows that Wisconsin is ranked 7th in the country for the likelihood a deer-vehicle will occur.

According to data, it is projected that a deer-vehicle collision happens to one out of every 78.7 drivers in the U.S. The state with the highest probability of an accident occurring is West Virginia, with nearly one out of every 40 motorists involved in a deer accident each year.  Hawaii was ranked last on the list for having the lowest number of deer accidents.

Officials with State Farm have stated that the month of November is the most common time for deer-vehicle collisions to occur. In order to prevent accidents, they are reminding drivers that deer travel in packs and are most likely out between the hours of 6 and 9 p.m.
