JAMESTOWN – New York State Police are reminding drivers that as we head into mid-October and early November, an increased number of vehicle deer crashes generally occur.

Troopers are asking drivers to use caution around dusk and dawn.

Last year, there were 1,523 collisions involving deer in the Western New York.

Officers warn if you’re driving and a deer enters the roadway, don’t swerve. Remain at the scene if you hit a deer and call 911.

Police can complete an accident report if your vehicle has over $1,000 in damage or if an involved person has been injured.
