It's because Virginia drivers won't stop for anything, up and including a red light.

I grew up in Western New York where the deer are the size of your average dairy cow. They total cars. I managed to drive for 5 years up there and never hit one. Came close, but never made contact. My friend, who thought he was Mario Andretti's distant lost cousin, managed to bag several with a few different cars.

It's accident avoidance. Some are better at it than others.
