It's now been confirmed.

West Virginia leads the nation for the sixth consecutive year as the state where an individual driver is most likely to run into a deer, says State Farm, the nation's largest auto insurer.

The chance of a West Virginia motorist striking a deer over the next 12 months is 1 in 40, compared with 1 in 48 the year before, says State Farm.

South Dakota moved from third place last year to second place, odds one-in-68. Iowa dropped from second to third place with a one-in-72 chance.

Overall, the number of deer-related collisions in the United States has increased by 7.7 percent over the last year, the company said.
