Hitting a Deer Can Be Deadly

November 28, 2011

Growing up in rural Michigan, I know all to well how dangerous hitting a deer with your vehicle can be.  Having hit one before, I also know how it freaks you out to see the this big beautiful animal dead as a result of it’s fear and confusion.  Recently, a friend sent me the following story and pictures.  It is a sober reminder that when driving where deer are being hunted, stay alert.  Thankfully, the passengers were not seriously injured.  Unfortunately, we can’t say the same for the deer.

How dangerous is hitting a deer?
They were traveling north of  Sterling,MI.48659 , on M-76 between Alger and  Standish.
Oncoming car clipped a deer and sent it straight up into the air. The  deer came down head-first into Clayton’s brand new truck on M-76. The deer’s  head went thru the front windshield, cutting the head (plus some) off, and landed in Jill’s lap. The body of the deer flipped up,  smashed in the top of the truck, and landed in the bed. Clayton couldn’t see Jill from his side, because the top of the truck was smashed in so horribly.

He got out of the truck, went around, and opened the door on her  side…only to start flipping out, because she was literally drenched  in blood. However, neither one of them was hurt. Her parents were following in a separate vehicle and didn’t see it happen..but  drove  up on it right afterward.  I can’t imagine what they were thinking!
