UNDATED (KDAL) - Deer-vehicle crashes are normally highest in the fall months but motorists are being advised that June is among the top months for driver and passenger injuries due to hitting a deer. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says the best way to avoid such crashes is to pay attention and slow down. If a crash can't be avoided, be sure you are buckled up. Motorcyclists are especially at risk and were involved in 11 of the 12 fatal crashes with deer in Wisconsin during 2012. There were a total of 18,864 deer vs vehicle crashes in the state last year.
