Last year in the state of Indiana there were over 15,000 accidents involving deer.  Out of those accidents there were 366 with injuries and two fatalities.  ISP has tips: be careful during dusk or dawn hours.  Pay attention to deer crossing signs.  Don’t swerve to avoid hitting a deer – by swerving you put yourself at risk for a worse collision with another motorist or running off the roadway.  Brake firmly and stay in your lane.  And, always report the collision – don’t touch it. A frightened or wounded deer can hurt you – it’s best to stay in your car as you notify cops, and your insurance.
