West Virginians are at the highest risk for colliding with a deer, according to State Farm.

West Virginia tops State Farm's annual list of the likelihood of deer crashes.

The Mountain State's top ranking came despite a 22 percent drop in deer-vehicle collisions between July 1, 2010, and June 30, 2011, the company said.

A motorist in West Virginia has a 1 in 53 chance of hitting a deer over the next 12 months. The odds were 1 in 42.

In Hawaii, the odds are 1 in 6,267.

State Farm says the number of deer-vehicle collisions nationally fell 7 percent last year.
