caution!!!! deer crossing ahead.....whether you like it or not
While Mr. G came away spooked shitless at the slightest movement from the side of the road now, the deer came away with a good chunk of our front right bumper, the front right headlight and the front right sidelight. the damage was close to $700, mostly to the fiberglass bumper. The insurance dude said that while the car was old--'93--it was in very good condition and since it doesn't even have 50k miles on it, it's still worth about $2500.
Unfortunately Bambi died.
I'm trying to figure out why though, because he hit the car on the right and continued across the road to the left side. We ASSumed he hit the car with his back hooves and that's why there wasn't that much damage. But if that were true, I don't think that would have killed him. Then I thought maybe he hit the bumper with his head and was propelled across the front of the car. But you'd think a head injury would throw him backwards, not forwards, right? So now I don't know what happened and Mr. G said it happened so fast he doesn't know what happened either, but thank God for Allstate.
Where's an accident re-creationist when ya need one?!
