Accident Law Changes

Posted: Updated:

A North Dakota accident law has changed.

Beginning August 1, motorists who strike a deer or other wild animal no longer need to report the crash  to authorities if it results in property damage only, regardless of the amount of damage to the vehicle.

Unless there are injuries, the driver can leave the scene of the accident. If injuries are reported or the vehicle is not driveable, law enforcement will respond and provide assistance.
