Deer a common crash hazard on new I-69 | News
Those traveling the new section of I-69 are finding deer to be a common hazard.
A state conservation officer told our media partner, the Princeton Daily Clarion, that the area’s large deer population means mating deer often chase each other onto the roadway.
A 67-mile stretch of the new interstate opened last month and it runs through part of Gibson and Pike Counties.
A state police captain says deer were involved in 28 of the 28 crashes that had occurred on the interstate through last week.
