But the truth is that you’re more likely to die in a car crash by veering outside the yellow or white lines than by hitting a moose. Only about one person per year dies in a moose crash, while 108 die in what the Maine Department of Transportation describes as “lane departures.” That’s when a vehicle crashes head-on with another or goes off the road. In total, about 150 people each year die in all car crashes.
