State Farm Insurance is out with its annual report on deer collisions. Like the five previous years, West Virginia is the state where we are most likely to hit a deer. Like last year, Iowa ranks second and Nebraska ranks eleventh.
The report found for the third consecutive year, the number of deer-vehicle collisions dropped nationwide. State farm estimates there were 1.09 million collisions between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011. That’s a 9% drop in one year. The previous year saw a 7% drop.
In West Virginia, State Farm calculated the chance of a driver hitting a deer is 1 in 53. In Iowa, the chance is 1 in 77. South Dakota ranks third with a 1 in 81 chance. Again, Nebraska ranks eleventh with a chance of hitting a deer estimated at 1 in 110.
