WASHINGTON - Picture yourself behind the wheel on a dark and shadowy night, watching the windshield wipers bat away the rain and wondering, "What are the odds I’m going to hit a deer?"
The answer would be one in 102 if you live in Virginia. They are one in 114 if you live in Maryland. (If you live in the District of Columbia, the odds are higher that you will hit an opossum.)
Utah ranked near the bottom as a low risk state with the odds one in 405 of hitting a deer while driving.
