Sangamon County Remains Close to Top of List in Crashes Involving Deer


There were fewer accidents, injuries and deaths last year from collisions between cars and deer… but Sangamon County remains close to the top of the list of places in Illinois where such crashes are most common.

 

Sangamon is number six on the list of Illinois counties with the most car-deer collisions, with 335 last year.

 

Overall there were 15,000 such crashes statewide in 2012, down from 18,000 the previous year.

 

Officials say you should be particularly cautious in the hours around dusk and dawn, when deer are most active.
