With colder months arriving you may have noticed more deer crossing our Tri-State roadways.

AAA says this comes as a warning to area drivers of the dangers involved in deer versus vehicle collisions.  

Deer-vehicle collisions usually increase in October, and peak in November and December.

In 2019 there were more than 3,000 crashes involving deer in the Bluegrass State, according to Kentucky State Police.

Nationwide there were more than 1.5 million accidents involving deer.

The travel experts at AAA say, the average deer-related car insurance claim in Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois is roughly $3,500.
