In the Headlights

I hit a deer tonight.

Didn’t mean to, I had just turned onto the main road (FM 5) from my mom’s street. The speed limit there is 55mph, so I was speeding up, probably going about 45 when it emerged from the dark on the left side of the road.

I slammed my brakes and swerved right a bit but could not miss it. I was probably going about 15 when I struck it, sending it tumbling into the grass on the right shoulder.

The deer actually jumped up and ran off! So it was not, I hope, hurt too bad. I got out and looked, there is minimal denting to my car, and the VW symbol of all things was knocked off but I found it in the grass.

Scared the living crap out of me! But at least the deer wasn’t killed and I am none the worse for wear.
