Anyone who has ever had a vehicular encounter with a deer knows that it should be referred to as a deer attack.

One of the saddest/funniest stories I know....

A 12 year old girl convinced her father to let her rescue a box turtle crossing the street.

While she was doing so, an SUV came around the corner and struck and killed her.

Horrific.

Then the SUV ran of the road, struck a telephone pole and burst into flame.

Hilarious!

Fire make almost everything funny.

Oh deer!

I like how she stopped the car in the exact middle of the road to avoid catching the nearby brush on fire. But I don't think it was on purpose.

I haven't had the pleasure, but I do know a deer strike can easily & absolutely total a car & seriously injure those inside.

I hit a deer last Friday. I'm driving my tiny little prius-c at night, on the back country county roads, coming back from meeting my wife for dinner. The roads can be scary enough in the daylight. Posted speed limit is 55. Hilly. There are quite a few times going to the top of the hills you have no idea what is on the other side. It is just wide enough for 2 cars to pass each other. You make damn sure you slow down and hug the right side close to the gravel/grass/ditches going over hills to avoid the 'oh shiat, car!' Or worse: slow farm equipment or deer. You swerve out of the way, you are in a ditch, trees, or cornfield.

i was doing just that over a hill. And the 'oh, shiat! DEER!' Happened. In slammed on the brakes. Not enough stoppage to avoid slamming into the deer. If i had another 10 feet, i would have come to a stop and avoided it. I have a good recollection of seeing the deer's eyes go wide staring at my car as i plow into it.

It catches air and tumbles, rolling into the ditch on the left side. Turn my hazards on. Pull to the side. Grab my phone. Turn on the flashlight. I'm like 'great, my front end is going to be a mess.' Surprised. No damage except my license plate is now bent conforming to the curve of the front of my car.

So, now i walk toward the ditch seeing what has become of this deer. And. No deer. I look behind my car down the road, and here is this deer, back in the middle of the road walking with a limp. Phew, we both shaken a little, dunno the extent of the deer's damage. But its moving. So, we both can move on with out lives.

Then i notice that this happened on the same small stretch of road where my son came over that hill in the opposite direction, caught air, lost control, and went into a cornfield about a year and a half ago. He had some nice swervy skid marks on that road when i came to help him out.

Which, if he would have waited for me to show up back then, i would have directed him to drive forward, turn his car toward the road and drive out. Instead, being the foolish iat year old he was, he apparently drove as fast as he could backward and rolled his car into the ditch on top of a drain pipe that crossed horizontally across the road at the lowest part of the valley. Needed 2 tow trucks to pull him out. One to lift, and one to pull. Lucking kid. Only damage was the clips that kept his panels attached. And, well, cornstalks wedged into crevices.

Yes, i took pics of his car in the ditch No. Im not sharing.

Was the corn stuck in car crevices or human crevices?

Actually, nevermind.  I'm good not knowing.

You rarely hear a happy story about a deer strike; and chitownmike is right upthread about deer attacks that they usually strike the car. (WTTW: If you see one deer cross expect more.)


Car fires always remind me of a friend telling me about her mundane fender bender. You'd perhaps have to know her sense of joy and ability to honestly laugh at herself to appreciate it, but it went like this: ..."And I got out and ran away--because I watch TV and knew I had exactly three seconds until the car would explode."

Mr Izo was ambushed by a deer 2 years ago, in a car he'd only had for 9 days. The only glimpse he got of it was as the hood flew up and the deer went up over the car [and rolled into a ditch].  The woman behind him said it looked like the car had exploded.  The front end damage didn't look horrible, but the car was totaled because the wiring harness was destroyed.

Did the deer have a bandana tied around its head?

Beware of... BAMBO! (Look up Deer Avenger)

They do. However, a ICE car fire is easier to extinguish than an EV fire.

My first car was an AMC Matador. It was a tank. It was awesome, when it worked.

The wiring harness was a biatch and the culprit. It failed me entirely when I drove around 200 km from my home. In American terms, that's like... 5 towns away? Only in Canada, we don't have random towns breaking up the wilderness. It was just - I was broke down in the woods of never-never land.

Anyway, long story short, I wound up with a Honda and a judicial order against personal relations with deer. But caribou are still okay.

That wasn't " bursting into flames"
She was unhurt and had time to get her self and the dog out of the car.

Try that with a lithium  battery car. They go up like a mad max movie special effect.

The hell was she driving, a Pinto?

1st deer: '89 Olds Delta 88. Had to replace the hood and a headlight. NBD
2nd deer: 92 Chevy Corsica. Missed the 2 does but not the buck chasing them. He slammed into my driver's side, shattered the windshield, caved in the entire driver's side, removed my side view mirror. Drove home like Ace Ventura.
3rd deer: '02 Pontiac Grand Am. Ran like a dream at 265,000 miles, smacked a doe on the freeway when she bounced out of a ditch. Ruined the driver's side headlight and biffed up a bit of the surrounding metal. Something started rattling on the way home. Could have been fixed, but age+mileage made it a total loss. NGL, I cried when I cleaned it out and removed my license plate.

Now I have a '15 Chrysler 200c and have had some encounters but no hits. I keep an evil eye charm on my windshield wiper control. It's not superstition if it works.

No explosions, though!
