U.S. Deer Collisions Down; West Virginia Not So Lucky

Drivers Encouraged to Stay Attentive

West Virginian deer continue to find the front grills of vehicles—more than in any other state. Using its claims data, State Farm has again come up with a report on deer-vehicle collisions and has found that for the third straight year, the overall number of these unfortunate encounters in the United States has fallen between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011.

However, the average cost of property damage due to these collisions was up 2.2 percent during this period, to $3,171. But the Mountain State, for the fifth year in a row, tops a list of states with the greatest odds of striking the wide-eyed grazers.
