Most deer-related crashes occurred in northern Ohio, including Stark, Richland, Lorain, Trumbull and Hancock counties. U.S. 30, I-71 and I-80 led the state’s roads for crashes involving deer, according to OSHP.
“Always avoid distractions and keep your full focus on the roadway,” Col. Richard Fambro said. “If you see a deer slow down, but do not swerve. If you strike a deer, move to a safe place if you are able, turn on your hazard lights and report the crash.”
