I had zero reaction time. I just remember saying, "Oh God no!!!!" Then I closed my eyes. It was a good thing too because when that glass went flying, it went all over me and I got a good bit in my mouth. That was because of all the girlie screaming I was doing. I'd hate to think about all that glass getting in my eyes too.

I didn't special order it. I found it on the lot. I love that friggin car. I called it my "Redskins car". Burgundy with a gold stripe.

You want to know what really pisses me off about the whole thing? Yesterday was the first time I've left work late in a long time. If I had left on time this wouldn't have happened. Why did I leave work late you ask? I was hanging out around our booking area arguing with the shift sergeant who is... a cowboys fan.

A neighbor who's driveway I pulled into and the other guy went looking for it, but didn't find anything. They were pretty "country", but they weren't what I'd call rednecks. They told me they hunted in that area and yeah, they seemed pretty psyched about finding it.
That thing didn't f'ing die? Holy shit. It did all that damage and it's still breathing... amazing. Fucking deer's name must be Roethlisberger.

Re: F... Deer

Sorry to hear about it LB...

SS, 7th grade, were you still in Potomac? I bet those deer own your old house by now, and their kids get on that same school bus...

I was driving to work in my beat up 01 Civic, with a headlamp out. Ahead, I see the first run go back, so I slowed down knowing damn well these things travel in packs. Sure enough, the 2nd one jumps out and I smack it with the right front part of the bumper. The deer kinda goes sideways for a second, then hits the ground running. No damage, but the headlamp that had been out for several weeks came back on and worked for several more weeks before burning out again.

Oh, and yes...Deer is good eatin'.

Re: F... Deer

Sorry to hear about your car. The good news is that hitting an animal is covered by your comprehensive coverage which usually has a smaller deductible and will not effect your rates. Well thats how it works in Va. Its not the deers fault as we have run roads through their homes and developed around them pushing them into smaller areas. No I'm not Mr PETA but the deer are doing what they do. This is the worst time of the year as they are breeding and the hunters stire them up.

Re: F... Deer

This is a hiliarious thread, only because I heard almost the same exact thing from Daryl Hall (hall and oats) on stern this morning on the way to work. He got lime disease from a deer tick which has effected his life, he no longer goes in the woods. He went off on a tyraid about killing all the deer. It had me rolling, he also mentioned all the car accidents due to the over population of deer.

Re: F... Deer

This happened to me a few months ago. My car has a nice, freshly-painted front end and hood.


Don't worry, LB, that'll buff right out.

On my way home this evening a very large buck appeared out of thin air and completely demolished the entire right side of my brand spankin new 2008 Honda Accord. First he hit the front fender. Then his head hit my passenger window sending a shower of glass all over me. He put large dents in both doors and then finished the back end off with a nice large dent there too, shattering the tail light.

I see a theme. Deer hate Hondas. Maybe they're smarter than I'v given them credit for in the past.

That leads me to this question for you auto body/car guys out there. Looking at that amount of damage what do you think will have to be done to the car as far as repairs go? Obviously most everything will have to be replaced, but I'm concerned about the framing and such.

I sure hope not. I drive an 02 Honda (that I don't make payments on) and if a deer smashes it up, I can't afford another car! . Then I'm stuck on public transportation.

I came in close encounters with deer in Rock Creek Park (anyone from the Metro area knows this is where Deer love to hang out and smash up your car). But I haven't hit one yet.

But wow, an 08 Honda LB? I saw one of those at the dealership and I nearly attached myself to the hood. I want one SO bad. What a bummer, Lady. Insurance is going to cover it? (I kinda skimmed, so if you mentioned it, I'm sorry I missed it). Glad you're okay btw, I know more people get killed by deer every year than like.. bear attacks and shit. :P

I have State Farm and they've been great so far. They were awesome when my husband's truck was totaled by a deer. I only have to pay a $50 deductible, so that's good. Luckily the Honda dealership where I bought the car has a body shop and they're part of State Farm's preferred service providers. I feel better about Honda repairing it than taking it to Joe Schmoe down the street.

Re: F... Deer

Sorry to hear about that LB. That's some scary shit.

I was involved in a similar incident not too long ago. My cousin was driving the back roads of Montgomery County, MD (Rt. 28 to be specific) and we were all just kind of hanging back. All of a sudden.. BAM...we nailed the thing and then swerved into a ditch.

I got out and walked up to the lifeless deer, and figured it was dead.

A few moments later... it lifted up it's head. I kind of freaked... because I didn't want some suffering deer just laying there so I decided to look for something to take care of it.

After searching for about five minutes the deer stood up and just stared at me. I literally walked right up to it and asked it to leave. I think I just started yelling "Go... like... out.. into the woods or something. you can't stand in the road confused". The deer sort of drunkenly stumbled around and eventually took off.

Similar damage done to the car. I think his head hit the drivers side window. My cousin swears he made eye contact with the deer for half a second. Weird shit.

They will probably replace the doors with either new or from a car which was smashed in on the drivers side. The biggest area of concern will be the rear 1/4 which they will either pop out the dent then bondo smooth or they will cut it out and replace. I would think that they would pop it out and bondo. Because its a new car they should have no problems matching the paint. Just because its a Honda Dealer does not always mean they have the best painters or body guys. In my area we have several mom and pop body shops which do excellent work which I would not hesitate to take my car to. You may want to ask State Farm about deminished value. This is what they give over the repair for the deminished value of your car because it was in a wreck. Not sure if this would qualify but it does not hurt to ask.
