In Minnesota, you have a 1 in 80 chance of hitting a deer this year. We have the 7th highest odds in the US. With reports of a deer population of nearly one million deer in the state, we want to offer you a few suggestions to help you avoid a deer collision and what to do if an accident occurs.
If you are involved in a deer collision call for help if anyone is injured. Reporting a deer collision with law enforcement is not required; however, the report will validate your claim with your insurance company.
Anytime you are involved in a collision you should inspect your vehicle before leaving the scene. If the following situations apply we would recommend your vehicle be towed due to safety or mechanical concerns:
Although we do not tow vehicles, we do work with any towing company. A couple of companies that we would recommend are Smitty's towing service here in Cold Spring (320)685-8984 and Collin's Brothers in St. Cloud (320)257-5525. Any tow truck that would be hauling your vehicle can stop by our shop 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
