State Farm Insurance data is showing that vehicles are most likely to collide with deer in West Virginia - a one in 45 chance.

That's up from a year ago when the odds were one in 57.

A few weeks ago, Erie Insurance says vehicles are more likely to hit deer in Calhoun, Pleasants, Pocahontas and Wirt counties than in any other West Virginia county.

The Erie, Pennsylvania-based insurer says there were more than 50 deer claims per 1,000 insured vehicles in Calhoun and each of those counties in 2007.

State Farm did not break down deer claims by county.

The Bloomington, Ill.-based insurance company says Michigan came in second again this year, followed by Pennsylvania, Iowa and Arkansas. Virginia came in 10th.
