On March 6th 2009 at about 7:25 PM, I hit a Deer or the Deer hit me..
It wasn't a pretty site. Had alot of traffic behind me and I couldn't stop. The rain was coming down, with fog in the air also. Poor me and poor Deer. The experience isn't one that I wish for anyone. What do you do to avoid this happening ? I believe I did the right thing, I slowed down as much as possible. You have to remember Deer don't usually travel alone. Where there is one there is usually 1 to 2 more. And his family that night, was waiting on the other side of the road. Animals are unpredictable, and you never know when one might decide, that it REALLY wants to be on the other side of the road. Well Mr. Buck didn't look both ways Friday night, before he decided to cross the road --and then BAM ~*%<^#> . Boy did the words come out of my mouth and then the sunken pit feelings in the stomach came, followed by the tears.
I was very thankful, I wasn't hurt...The poor Deer kept going also, but I believe he has one messed up hip and is missing alot of hair... I'm also Thankful for my insurace... The damages sooo far are $3,552. The poor Deer tore up my hood, tore off the mirror and messed up the two doors, along with also tearing off the mirror. What a site my car is, so into the shop the car went on Saturday morning. And now I'm driving a rental... For how long that I'll be driving this --I have no idea..
