Did you ever hit a deer with your car?

  I had an accident that involved a deer a couple of years ago, actually the deer ran in to the side of the drivers door.  It was expensive about $3000.00 and was covered by my insurance as a comprehensive claim.
  All told about one and a quarter million such crashes happen every year.  The damage cost about 4 billion dollars but the sad part is about 200 drivers or passengers lose their life.
  I don't really know how these accidents could be prevented.  I am "extra cautious" in the area where we collided but I've seen deer even "in town".  Just be alert and don't drive distracted.
