Live in Texas? Your chances of hitting a deer have increased!
I shared this story a few times.
A few years ago, while driving in the suburbs of Chicago I hit 2 baby deer. They weren’t fully grown deer, nor were they fawns.
(By the way I had to look up the definition of fawn lol) It happened so quick, All I heard was “bloop”, “bloop” on the left side of my car, I closed my eyes….and I looked over and saw 2 teenage (let’s use that term) deer running off to the right…Keep in mind I’m driving.
Texas is ranked the 38th state likely to run into a deer, despite a new study done by State Farm Insurance showing your chances of hitting one in the state of Texas in 2017 is 7% higher than last year.
And get this:
The number of deer-related accidents occurring between the months of October and December increase!
My car had like…..$2000 in damages and I needed to get a new hood but I suffered no injuries.
But since that day, I have been afraid to drive where I know deer are.
State Farm also encourages motorists not to swerve, and to hit a deer on the road if necessary.
