Last night at around 8:45 pm I got in my car and was headed over to pick up one of my daughters from a friend's house. About a block from my house I was going around 45 when from the other direction a car was going around the same speed. Right when we reached each other I felt a HUGE crash and wondered what had happened since neither of us had veered into the other lane. Then I thought that maybe their door had opened and I either hit it or something that came from the car. I pulled the car over and noticed that the other car was pulled over the other direction down the road. My driver's side door would not open so I had to climb over to get out. The people in the other car came over to see if I was okay. I asked them what had happened and they said. "You didn't see it? There was a HUGE deer that hit our car and then bounced off and crashed into yours. It must have ran across right as we were facing each other. The deer was nowhere to be found but it left some of it's fur on my front end. What a very scary night. I feel so blessed and thankful that the Lord preserved my life. It could have been so much worse. The deer could have gone in front of me and caused me to drive into a pole, etc. etc. I can't think about that, I'm just happy that we are all okay.
Here are pics of my car. I now am in a rental. We will see what the damages are and if the insurance company totals my car or plans to repair it. It looks like a lot of damage.
