Deer out of nowhere
Moved into WV and heard the stories but, did not believe that deer tend to "come out of nowhere" - until it happened to me.
I was just 5 mins from my house, after a 2 hr commute from friends in Virginia, when all of a sudden out of the trees bolts a doe. She came from the left and landed right in front of my car.
Not even a chance to swerve! All I could do was slam on the brakes and she hit my front bumper, rolled on my hood and windshield and flew over the top.
Amazingly enough, I was ok, my car needs a new bumper and hood...no damage to the windshield. Another amazing thing...I was not initally phased by it...not until 2 days later!
Now, I am very timid and skiddish behind the wheel. I have to drive 15 mins to my van pool...that is all I want to do and nothing extra!
It would not be so bad if it wasn't for the fact that the doe bolted out of trees and thickets ... in broad daylight! I feel like one of those kids walking through a haunted house waiting for something to jump out of nowhere when I drive now! This sucks!
