October Cobalt Deer Accident

Hey guys... I finally got my rims this month. but in last couple weeks a deer hit my car. I was devastated! This was my first car accident... I was very scared and upset. Well I was heading to work 3:30am Very dark out. Even with my new HID lighting the deer came out of nowhere hitting the side of my car damaged the fender / corner panel / mirror ripped off. tire shredded. No damage to the rims! I wasn't hurt but my heart was this car is my baby and I put alot of money into her.. thankfully insurance covered it. no deductible either since I have proof of deer hitting me. I have some photos to show of the damage. The car is in the repair shop it should be finished very shorty. I miss her and still have alot more projects to put on her.

We don't get those in Pennsylvania. If I did I wouldn't be alive.

Horse or Cow your fxxk'd. I rather hit nothing. Am going to be a lot more cautious and aware. I don't want to get into another accident with this car.

I almost hit a cow last month when I was visiting my parents. I nearly soiled myself. Glad that you only took cosmetic damage.

How fast were you going? Often makes a big difference in response time.

Although my sisters neighbors constantly remind her that even though she lived up there for like 4 years now, her and her husband are still just a couple of trolls...
