1:32 AFTERNOON UPDATE: KSP warn motorists about deer

FRANKFORT — Autumn is in full swing in Kentucky decorating its landscape and roadways with vibrant, colorful foliage. These fall colors serve to remind drivers that they will see an increased movement of deer throughout the commonwealth. In addition, deer season begins Nov. 10 and motorists are more likely to encounter these animals on or near roadways. 

Spokesperson for Kentucky State Police in Frankfort, Sgt. Rick Saint-Blancard says motorists need to take extra precautions when driving during fall months. 

"It is extremely important to recognize this ever-present risk, especially at this time of year when nearly 50 percent of all collisions with deer occur," said Saint-Blancard. "Last year, we had 2,938 deer-related collisions in Kentucky with three of those being fatal collisions."
