Tri-State drivers urged to look out for deer


KENTUCKY (WEHT) – It’s that time of year where drivers in the Tri-State need to be aware of deer on the move.

Half of all crashes involving deer happen between October and December.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the state was 15th in the nation for collisions involving deer, with more than 3,000 crashes in 2018.

We’ve seen it before, herds of deer trying to cross Highway 41 near Audubon State Park.

Drivers should be careful, specifically during twilight hours, when deer are more likely to be on the move and visibility is poor.
