SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Motorists are more likely to crash into a deer in the Dakotas than in most other states.

State Farm has released its annual ranking of states in terms of the likelihood of deer-vehicle collisions. The insurer uses claims data and state licensed driver counts from the Federal Highway Administration.

South Dakota has moved from third to second on the list, with the chance of a driver hitting a deer estimated at one in 68. North Dakota remains at eleventh, with the chance one in about 105.

West Virginia tops the list, with a 1-in-40 chance.
