The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports that from 1975 to the mid 2000s, there was an upward trend in deaths from vehicle collisions with animals. This trend might have leveled off in the last few years, but a large number of motorists annually still have their lives disrupted by collisions with animals. While 190 people are reported to have died from animal collisions in 2018, a much larger number of motorists were injured due to these accidents.
