Which Michigan communities have the most deer-vehicle accidents?

Jon Harrison

More than 45,000 Michigan motorists collided with deer in 2016, and such crashes accounted for a third of traffic accidents last November.

Deer-vehicle crashes injured more than 1,200 people and killed 14 in 2016.

Visit the article for a list of the 50 Michigan cities and townships with the most accidents last year, along with Google maps showing the locations of those crashes.  The maps come from the Michigan Traffic Crash Facts website maintained by University of Michigan

The article also provides  a database that allows readers to look up the number of 2016 deer-vehicle crashes for any Michigan city, township or village that reported collisions.  This database uses numbers collected by the Michigan State Police, and only includes collisions where a police report was filed.  If you're on a mobile device, click here to access the database.
