While the number of people killed on America’s highways has fallen in recent years, there is nevertheless some troubling news. This is because while tragic accidents between people declined, incidences between people and nature have not. Indeed, according to a recent industry study, fatalities from vehicle crashes with deer and other animals have more than doubled over the last 15 years, killing 223 people in 2007 alone. Texas experienced the most deaths from such collisions, with Wisconsin and Pennsylvania not far behind. Since experts believe that increased accidents are likely to occur with more urbanization, here’s hoping that “deer in the headlights” look isn’t one you have to encounter anytime soon!
