Belmont County

BELMONT COUNTY, OHIO (WTRF) — At this time of year, we are more likely to encounter a deer on the road than at any other time.

Lt. Maurice Waddell of the Ohio State Highway Patrol says deer related crashes are highest from mid-October to early November.


He urges drivers to be aware of your surroundings.


Use your bright lights any time there’s no oncoming traffic.

And watch for deer at all times.
