|This time of year often brings with it a rise in deer vehicle collisions. The following advice is what to do if you are involved in one, or become aware of a situation in which you might need to know what to do next.
STAY SAFE AND REPORT THE INCIDENT
If you see an injured deer on the roadside?
– Pull over at a safe place
If you hit a deer while driving, your priorities, in this order, are:
– Keep yourself and anyone with you as safe as you can
If the deer is alive and still visible at roadside:
– It is best not to approach it. Doing so may cause it to run across traffic causing another accident.
