Unhappy so car may be totaled *UPDATE!!*

i was on my way home tonight, took the highway so i wouldn't hit a deer, and low and behold, a freakin deer ran right out in front of me, went right through my windshield

i'm okay, they said if i was going any faster, i would have been crushed, the deer was just that big

the entire roof buckled in, where my head was supposed to be was the roof and broken glass

everybody on the scene was amazed i walked away, so i'm counting my blessings tonight

i'm sore, upset, and still pulling glass out of every inch of my body, but i'm okay


thank God i'm okay

Re: so car may be totaled

this is not a good week for anyone I don't think...

good thing you are ok...I know what the northern deer are like...hit my fair share of them over the years...to go through the window is definitely a lucky to walk away affair.

hmm...maybe you could get killer deal on a mach 1? Or how about an orange 04 GT vert...I know where there is one.

+1, as much as you love your car, be greatful for the fact that YOU are alive and okay -- cars can be replaced, people can't... (get used to this comment! I heard it non stop after the 02 GT was wrecked )


I am glad you are alive, and hopefully your cuts/scrapes/bruises disappear before too long....

Yeah...

Good luck with whatever comes next...

Ah...girl after my own heart...find the joke in there somewhere.

And yeah, I was luck to never hit one with my cars...but I did in a ranger and an explorer and that was bad enough. I would definitely need some new drawers having one of those big mo fo's come flying into my lap.

It wouldn't be so bad down here...nothing more than a large dog in size...

But, at least you are relatively unscathed....the car can be replaced...maybe with one with a roush already on it.

Re: so car may be totaled

I've lived in Alabama all my life and never come close to hitting a deer. Now that I have said that I'll probably nail one tomorrow.

Glad you are ok. Hope the car can get fixed as well

Last one I hit came home with me...broke the knife out the glove compartment, gutted it, threw it in the back of the explorer...***** was in the freezer the next day.

Holy ****, I'm very happy to hear you are okay!

Man, I'm glad my car will never hit a deer out here. I have better chances hitting a coyote than a deer here.

Re: so car may be totaled

I'm happy you're ok. I know what it's like to hit a deer. It was just in the Ranger I used to drive and the deer down here are really small. I could see a big deer easily demolishing our cars.

Glad you survived. I almost got a big buck a year or so ago. Fortunately, I saw him coming and was able to slow up and let him get across the road before I got there. He had him a whole buncha points on his rack.

Did it deploy the airbags? If you need to borrow the 'vette, just let me know .

Re: so car may be totaled

hitting deers suck ***... glad for me the one I hit was a small one. One of the main reasons I hate driving at night somewhere not in the city is due to deers....

If you cant repair it take something off of it to remember it by~ but you never know.

Very sorry to hear about the car, but at least you're alright.

Re: so car may be totaled now w/pictures :(

Hmm. Surely it wouldn't be totaled. Looks like new roof, a pillars, windshield, cowl, and assuming front bumper, maybe the hood also. I'm thinking about 2-2.5k...:dunno:

Wow, I am so sorry girl. I'm very glad to hear you are okay though!!! Accidents have to be scariest thing on Earth. I've been in 3 bad ones myself. It is definitely an amazing thing you walked away from that. Sorry to hear about your car possibly being a total, you never know though, hopefully they'll be able to fix it! If not, I hope you find another hot Mustang you love just as much (or close)! Best of luck with everything. Hope you feel better soon. I know it sucks. And well said, the amazing thing is that you are okay after that. Nothing could ever replace that.
