Fall arrived on Thursday, and with that comes the seasonal increase in deer crossings in Michigan. To remind residents to use quick braking to keep from hitting deer, Michigan State Police released footage caught by a state trooper on Twitter Thursday of a deer leaping over a moving car. Trooper Anderson was driving behind another car when suddenly, a small herd of deer ran across the road, according to MSP. Authorities have not said when or where the incident happened. But the video was released by MSP's Fifth District in southwest Michigan.\u00a0 Watch the video on Twitter below.\u00a0 One deer narrowly avoided contact by jumping over the sedan ahead of the trooper. The driver of the sedan did not appear to hit the brakes. "Reminder: If deer cross your path - apply controlled braking; steer straight; don\u2019t swerve." MSP wrote on Twitter.\u00a0 While the state's two million deer are most active in spring and fall, vehicle-deer crashes are a year-round problem, according to MSP. Each year, there are nearly 50,000 reported vehicle-deer crashes statewide. About 80% of the crashes occur on two-lane roads between dusk and dawn. Additional tips to avoid hitting deer that are crossing the road are available on MSP's website.
