I ALMOST HIT A DEER!!!!!! Most would say almost is good but in this sitaution it was bad. Because I was doing about 45-50 mph on a two lane back road without shoulders. A deer ran out from the left side of the road, swerved and hit the brakes. While swerving, the passenger side tires went into the grass. Another car was coming down the road coming the other way, so that narrowed this tiny a$$ road even more for me. The rear of the car was sliding out right as I held this massive drift until I hit the brake again to try to slow down some more. The entire car launched around in a 180 and slid into a small ditch but not before bouncing the driveside front wheel and fender off of a tree. Damage at first did not appear too extensive; smashed quarter panel, ding in the hood, scraped up bumper and wheel. But upon further investigation I found that the driveside front wheel was bent in making the front wheels look like this with the steering wheel straight l l I wish I would have mangled that furry bastard now!!!! Worst part was the other car seen the whole thing but never stopped!
The subframe is a little bent and I guess you would call it the steering control arm is mangled, which would mean my ALK is probably beat also. I haven't got under there too good yet (I've been doing everything in my power not to go on a deer killing spree or to drink myself into a coma) but thats the what I've seen so far. I just can't believe how much damage happened from such a little impact. I mean I couldn't have been doing more the 15-20 mph at the point of impact! I've seen people hit curbs going fast and get less damage!!
Is this gonna be an expensive fix? Will my car ever be the same again? I'll post pictures when I go to see it again, she's locked up tight in my friends garage until she goes to the shop. Now I'm praying my insurance company doesn't drop me since I had the drunk b!tch incident 6 months ago!! I'm beginning to think I'm damned or God hates me
