It happens when you least expect it. You’re driving along as normal as pie on route 79. Looking out at the road ahead everything looks perfectly normal. You come to a stretch of road that is surrounded by trees and dense brush. Eh, no big deal. You’ve driven this route plenty of times. All of a sudden, a flash of brown enters the road right in front of you. Before you have time to react, your car hits that brown object and the impact is jarring. You come to a stop and sit in the car a moment collecting your composure.
What just happened?
You gingerly get out of the car and realize instantly what has happened. You’ve hit a deer. Darn. The beautiful animal is laid out in the road, obviously deceased. The poor creature never stood a chance against a heavy vehicle going at a good rate of speed. While the deer didn’t make out too good your car sure didn’t come out of this accident without a scratch. In fact, there’s quite a bit of damage to the front area. As you look at the damage up close, you bemoan not having seen the deer in time to avoid hitting it. That’s a normal reaction.
