When MO and I were driving home from softball on Monday night we hit a deer on the highway. MO was driving (thankfully) and two deer ran onto the highway right in front of the Jeep. There was also a vehicle passing us on the left lane at the same time, so hitting the deer was the best option over hitting the other vehicle or going into the ditch and possibly rolling the Jeep. Luckily MO was able to hit the breaks and lessen the blow to us, so it wasn't a super severe impact in the car, we and our 2 dogs who were also in the vehicle are all totally fine. The deer was not and our Jeep is probably totaled. MO contacted insurance and our roadside assistance towed for free to a local bodyshop. We should find out in the next few days if it is a total loss or not, but we are thinking it will probably be totaled out. It's too bad as that was our nicest and most reliable vehicle. But everyone is safe and that is all that matters!
