JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) - Insurance companies have classified Missouri as one of three states deemed "high-risk" for deer collisions.
The Joplin Globe reports that the other two states considered high-risk are Arkansas and Kansas, according to State Farm.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says that accidents involving deer are common, but fatalities and injuries are rare. The patrol reported three deaths and just more than 300 injuries from deer collisions in 2015.
