A few years back, I was driving on a highway at about 8 pm. Without warning, a large white-tailed deer ran in front of my path and I hit him. He was scooped up onto the hood, smashed against my windshield and sent up and over the car into deer heaven. Both my airbags activated and my Neon was almost a write-off. It could have been worse. Traffic was very heavy. Fortunately, I was able to keep the car on the road and ease it off onto the shoulder without causing a collision.
