November is said to be peak season for deer collisions early in the morning and late afternoon. Between July of 2016 and June of 2017, State Farm reported close to 30,000 auto claims from drivers hitting a deer in Alabama alone.

The damage can be major and sometimes deadly, but thankfully that was not the ending in this case. Wigfall said the repair job will cost around $6,000. In terms of national rankings, Alabama is close to the middle of the pack, 23rd in the nation in deer-car collisions. According to State Farm, West Virignia is leading the nation this year in the number of deer-car collisions
