Watch Out for Animals on Hoosier Roadways

Fall is a time for changing leaves, apple cider, and car crashes involving animals.

Hoosier drivers had an estimated 44,000 crashes with animals over the past year, according to a new report from State Farm.

Based on claims data and industry estimates, 1 in 103 Indiana drivers had a run-in with an animal on a road, with more than 70% of those crashes involving deer.

October is the second-highest month for animal collisions, according to State Farm.

November is the top month for these kinds of crashes and December is number three.
