It’s deer season in Missouri especially with the changing of the seasons it’s important that you be on the lookout. Deer are fast and unpredictable. Each year there are thousands of car deer related crashes in Missouri with many injuries as well as fatalities. Captain Hull…is public information officer with the Missouri State Highway Patrol shares the key times to be watching.
Hull reminds us when are the busiest months for deer on Missouri roads.
Hull reminds us that when you feel a vehicle deer collision is unavoidable you must drive through the animal and not try to avoid it by swerving.
If you strike a deer do not try and get out of your vehicle to see if you have killed it. It’s extremely dangerous as it could cause more accidents. A wounded deer is a dangerous animal. If you feel unsafe just continue if possible to avoid the animal.
