MASSILLON, Ohio- The Ohio Department of Transportation is warning residents to be on the look out as we enter the peak times for deer and car crashes.

“Fewer daylight hours, the increased movement of deer due to mating season, along with hunting season, can mean a greater risk of collisions between deer and vehicles,” said ODOT Director Jerry Wray in a news release on Friday.
