Sorry to see it and glad it wasn't worse. My friend in NC had a deer crash into her on the highway recently.

I hit one in the late '90s. My poor '89 Tercel suffered a lot, but survived.

Luckily, I hit it on the corner, its head crashed in the middle of the hood's front while the body destroyed the fender, of course breaking the headlight along.

The most dangerous part is you hit it head on, breaking its paws. Then the deer's body ends up in the windshield, possibly seriously injuring you. I've seen it a few times.

Glad you weren't hurt.

A couple of years ago I spotted a dead deer in the passing lane of 495 at night while driving at the speed limit 65MPH. It happened so fast I ran over it in an old Saturn station wagon. To my surprise there was no damage to the car but I could smell cooking meat for about 2 weeks probably from stuff stuck to the exhaust. Glad somebody else killed it and the thing didn't come though the windshield. Deers are dangerous and sometimes dears are also

I just went through this with a similar experience earlier this month. They stopped at 9,000 on the repair estimate and totaled it.

My wife went to Kansas City for the weekend with our daughter for a soccer tourney, and came home Sunday night (Nov 5th). Was about 10 minutes from home and a large doe decided to jump out in front of her while going 80mph (SD speed limit)

Luckily, both my wife and daughter are ok....she did what she was suppose to do...try and slow down and drive right through. The irony of the situation, I normally go to the tourneys as I am one of two coaches, but it was opening weekend for deer hunting back home so I went up that way with my son. We didn't see a single thing and came home empty handed which my wife was cranked up about as she wanted venison sticks.......I thought this was a bit extreme.

She ended up getting a new Subaru Outback for her birthday to replace her beloved car.

I travel a lot to Toronto, almost every other month as the in-laws are from Etobicoke. A year ago I was heading up there with the wife and the kid,we started spotting herds of deer on the side of NY state throughway (I-90) right after we passed Rochester, NY. There were so many for a 10 mile stretch of the highway that I had to slow the minivan down to 20~30 mph as I was afraid that at any second one of them would jump in front of the car. Luckily nothing like that happened and also the fellow motorists noticed them as well and pretty much everyone drove at that speed for that 10 mile stretch.
