What are the chances?
PRINCETON — Illinois drivers may breathe a sigh of relief, but not for too long, when it comes to deer/vehicle accidents.
According to information released Monday by State Farm Insurance, Illinois has seen a 10 percent decline in the number of deer/vehicle crashes in this past year. Drivers in Illinois now have a 1 in 214 chance of hitting a deer this year, compared to last year’s 1 in 162 chance. With these latest numbers, Illinois is now ranked as the 32nd most likely state in which to hit a deer, compared to the 30th most likely state last year.
On Monday, State Farm spokesperson Chris Mullen said the busiest season for deer accidents is just approaching. About 18 percent of all deer/vehicle accidents typically happen in November, with October and December coming in as the second and third busiest months, respectively.
