Driving the news: The state ranks fifth in the nation for collisions between cars and animals, State Farm data shows.
- The likelihood of hitting an animal is one in 54.
Between the lines: This is an improvement considering Pennsylvania saw the third highest likelihood of animal-car collisions in the country last year.
- But Pennsylvania tops the list in 2021 for placing the most insurance claims for these types of collisions.
The bottom line: Be safe out there.
