  • Got owned by a deer.

    I got owned by a deer on the way to a meeting this morning.

    I was going around a turn, wet road, at a normal speed, when BAM!! there's this deer in front of me. I have no time to react so i spin wheel and slam brakes (stupid me!). Rear end skids into other lane, then i'm 90 degrees sideways going down the hill....then for some reason i get traction and shoot forward right into the back on the side of the road...I nailed a garbage can and my back end spins out, I go up the bank, flip over once, and land right side up.

    As soon as I was 90 degrees sideways i was just there for the ride, nothing I could do.

    Car's at the shop now...and I'm alright. I was released from the hospital a while ago so no problems there, just a broken left leg, so i'll be driving an auto for a while.

    I'm getting a rental car so I can go places while the car's gone.

    Insurance is full coverage after a $250 deductable, they pay for the rental car and the towing also.

    I guess it turns out alright, since I get the two small dents that were already in my body fixed, and new paint....but then I get shafted with insurance for a long time.

    Keep in mind this was all at 6 this morning.

    Very pricey was to get the dents out. I am glad that you are ok. Broken leg still sucks. I presume you missed Bambi or you would be talking about having Venison(SP?) for the holidays. I drive to work about 5:30 and I have to watch for deer on old country roads as well. What a hell of a way to wake up. Hope you did not spill coffee on the interior

      Now from experience you can tell some of the guys what it feels like to do the Happy Dance through the woods at a high rate of speed....
