Police Warn Motorists To Watch For Deer

Last updated on Friday, November 2, 2012

(BLOOMINGTON) - The Indiana State Police would like to remind motorists that many property and personal injury crashes occur this time of year as deer migrate from the fields and woods and run across Indiana roadways.

Each year in Indiana, several thousands of dollars worth of damage occurs from vehicle-deer crashes. In many cases, motorists are injured when they panic and swerve to miss a deer, and lose control of their vehicles and hit fixed objects.

The Indiana State Police recommend the following driving techniques:

Motorists must report any crash where there is at least $1,000 in property damage or if someone is injured. Driving defensively, wearing a seat belt, and obeying all speed laws will help motorists avoid crashes and prevent injuries.
