So when is the last time you struck a deer on a Tennessee roadway? Chances are good, you have never struck a deer. Kip Diggs with State Farm Insurances tells WGNS the odds of striking a deer in Tennessee are 1 in 164. The ranking leads Tennessee to fall in the middle of the list of all 50-states for vehicle verses deer collisions at 25.  Diggs says it was 26th last year. 

The state in which deer-vehicle mishaps are least likely is still Hawaii (1 in 6,787).  The odds of a driver in Hawaii colliding with a deer between now and 12 months from now are approximately equal to the odds of a middle-of-the-pack National Football League team running off 13 wins in a row.
