Lieutenant governor to Ohio drivers: Watch out for deer

COLUMBUS

Ohio’s insurance director says fall is the peak season for deer-related crashes in the state and is urging drivers be on the lookout.

Insurance Director and Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor says drivers should be extra careful in the morning and early evening and check to ensure they have adequate insurance coverage.

Taylor says some Ohioans may not be aware that the collision portion of an insurance policy’s physical damage coverage does not include deer-vehicle collisions. Damage to a vehicle from such a collision would not be covered for consumers who only have a liability policy.

Taylor says deer-vehicle collisions can cost thousands of dollars in repairs
