Custom88 is on a distinguished road
Default Splat!

My mom got home and told me that she had just ran over a deer just down the road. It was a full size deer that had been hit in the road and left. Well, she was going 60 MPH and another car was coming from the other direction so she couldn't avoid it and she apparently didn't see it until it was too late and she ran OVER the deer. The bonneville really isn't too high off the ground either. I didn't see any damage to the car, there'* just blood all over the undercarriage and all along the passenger side of the car. It'* pretty nasty looking. She drove home and most of the blood had come off the car from the road spray, etc. You can still see some chunks under it though.

I did the same thing in my sisters '93 Olds 88 about a year and a half ago and saw no damage at all. The car almost lost control though since I hit it at ~70.

Having hit one head on at 60mph and also having them eat almost everything in our back yard, my motto is "the only good deer is a dead dear". Too bad I'm not a hunter so I could take care of a few of them myself.
