Deer account for several thousand vehicle crashes every year. It's easy to forget that these beautiful four-legged friends can cause so much damage to a vehicle, and injuries and even death to someone in the vehicle. While deer crashes occur year-round, November has the highest number of crashes. They happen most often between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m., and again in the evening from 6 p.m. - 11 p.m.
If you hit a deer, you are no longer required to report the crash to law enforcement unless an occupant in the vehicle has a physical injury or there is a fatality. Remove the deer to the side of the roadway if it is safe and you are able. If you are unable to do so, you may contact your North Dakota Department of Transportation district office or North Dakota State Radio at 800-472-2121 so they can make arrangements to remove the deer.
