What are the odds in your state? What are the odds in your state?

(Meredith) –  Some states have a higher chance of drivers colliding with deer than others, according to a report released from State Farm.

The study shows the likelihood in each state of drivers possibly hitting a large animal, like a deer, elk, moose or caribou. They found that drivers in West Virginia have the highest odds of hitting a deer with a 1 in 43 chance. On the opposite side of the spectrum, drivers in Hawaii have a 1 in 6,823.

Check out these driving tips from State Farm so you can stay safe on the road:

  • Slow down, particularly at dusk and dawn.
  • If you see one deer, be prepared for more deer to cross the road.
  • Pay attention to deer crossing signs.
  • Always buckle up - every trip, every time.
  • Use your high beams to see farther, except when there is oncoming traffic.
  • Brake if you can, but avoid swerving. This can result in a more severe crash.
  • Remain focused on the road. Scan for hazards, including animals.
