Hit an animal that was crossing the road?

Statistics for U.S. Crossing Animal Accidents
According to a State Farm analysis, there were 1.9 million crossing animal accidents that occurred between the summer of 2020 and the summer of 2021. Crossing animal accidents can happen when a domesticated animal owned by a person escapes from their home or enclosure and causes a collision on the roadway while crossing. They can also happen when a wild animal crossing the roadway causes the driver to hit the animal itself or swerve and collide with a fixed object or another vehicle.
