I keep going over the actual impact. I haven’t been in any sort of accident before, so when it materialized pretty much right on top of me, without any time to react, it was a pretty big shock. The damn thing must’ve been behind a tree and jumped out just as I was passing. I was driving a Ford F-150.
There’s a bit of blood on the front of the hood, I’m guessing where it hit first. There’s some panel damage along there and the passenger’s door. The passenger’s half of the windshield is splintered and torn through–half of the deer’s antlers were broken off and sticking in it when I stopped.
There’s fur embedded in all the broken glass. The inside of the cab–Jesus Christ–that’s a LOT of broken glass. It took out the passenger window and mirror, too.
Crazy stuff. And I’d just gotten back from finding an awesome apartment and flirting with a hot girl at the grocery store.
