Deer-Vehicle Crashes Decline

Sep 28, 2012

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says there were more than 22-thousand deer-vehicle collisions in Ohio last year.

That is a decline of  2.2 percent from the previous year and the third straight yearly drop. Those crashes resulted in seven fatalities and more than 1-thousand injuries. State officials say most deer-vehicle crashes occur in the month of November. Mitch Wilson of the Ohio Insurance Institute tells Statehouse Correspondent Bill Cohen the reason for the decline is a mystery.
