Car-deer crashes up in October on county roads
October was a bad month for cars and deer on Dakota County roads. Of the 57 accidents involving deer this year in the county, 14 took place last month.
That's slightly less than a quarter of the year's total in one 31-day stretch.
Last year there were 59 car-deer accidents all year on Dakota County roads, and sheriff Dave Bellows said the accidents tend to be more common toward the end of the year.
