Huron County | by Peter Jackson  

OPP say collisions with deer spike in November, with 18 reported so far this month.

Huron OPP say they investigate more collisions involving vehicles and deer in November, than any other month of the year.

Police say they've already investigated 18 vehicle-versus-deer crashes in Huron County from the start of this month through Monday.

In November 2016, 64 collisions were reported through the 30 days, and there were just over 300 incidents of cars and trucks striking deer in all of last year.

The following is a list of areas in Huron County that see the highest number of vehicle-versus-deer collisions:

•Bluewater Veterans Highway (Highway 21) between Black's Point Road & Union Road
