SIOUX FALLS, N.D. (AP) - The likelihood that a motorist will crash into a deer in the Dakotas remains higher than in most other states.

State Farm’s annual ranking of states in terms of the likelihood of deer-vehicle collisions puts South Dakota fifth and North Dakota 14th.

In South Dakota, the chances of a driver hitting a deer are estimated at 1 in 73. In North Dakota, the chance is 1 in 113. The national odds are 1 in 169.

West Virginia tops the list for the ninth year in a row, with a 1-in-44 chance of a motorist hitting a deer.
