Check Your State’s Likelihood of a Deer-Car Collision with This Map [PICS]

How does your state rank when it comes to hitting deer on the road?

These probabilities come from an annual State Farm report about deer-car collisions across the US. State Farm determines the likelihood of deer-car collisions in each state using insurance claims data.

The regions with the highest risk of deer-car collisions are the Appalachian states, the Midwest, and the southeast. The state with the highest risk is West Virginia, which has a higher risk this year than it did last year.

These five states have the highest risk of deer-car collisions:

  1. West Virginia – 1 in 39

  2. Pennsylvania – 1 in 71

  3. Montana – 1 in 75

  4. Iowa – 1 in 77

  5. South Dakota – 1 in 82
