An insurance report shows that drivers face a greater chance of hitting a deer on South Carolina's roadways than in most other states.
The State newspaper reports that South Carolina ranks 11th nationwide in deer-vehicle crashes in a study by State Farm, the nation's largest auto insurance company. It ranks West Virginia first and Hawaii last.
According to the South Carolina Department of Public Safety, 518 people were injured statewide last year in deer crashes.
Four people have been killed so far this year, including three on motorcycles.
Officials say nearly 20 percent of deer crashes occur in November.
