Insight Meets Deer :'( (pg1 HEAVY w/ Images)
I was driving today, up north, to take care of some business- eBay, some browsing, and my roommate had a return to make.

~55 in 55, maybe a bit more. Three deer in a field to the west. Two run east across the road, and the third starts running north. I had slown down to ~35 trying to watch this deer when it just shot east and we met.

The deer did not survive, and landed about 20 feet off the side of the road. She was in tact, but I am not posting images of that. I was very surprised since when my father did worse damage to his F 150 at a faster speed, the deer survived and took off, not to be found, while his truck had severe damage.

I do shamelessly advertise my website via my vehicles, but I hope it is clear that is not my intention by posting these images. The site is not complete, so I do not post the half baked site.

The images really explain it all. We are all safe, and the little physical damage I took is nothing. I believe in a higher power, and I believe I am blessed, I just hope my Insight being totaled is not in my future :/

The Insight is still powering on, but there is a bit of a smell.

Feel free to comment, stories, and chat!

Holy Crap!!! Glad you guys are all right!!!

That's some $$$ in damage there:( Nothing that can't be fixed but its going to be a few dollars.

Glad you're alright. Poor deer, pray for it.

We will pray for your car.

I'll be honest, I am not real happy with the deer...

...are you thinking "...venison..." right about now?

I don't have the storage/capacity to use it all, in the moment I wouldn't have minded lightening my mag- we drove home and switched vehicles, and on the way back she was getting picked up by someone already. Dead deer around here don't last long.

I was expecting to see what looks like a crumpled up beer can and 4 tires, but it fared way better.

Yeah, theres a youtube video I decided not to publish where a deer jumpped out in front of me then I in turn went back to finish him off with my vehicle. :eek:

Glad to hear your okay.

Maybe this is a good excuse to make a nice, custom aero front end??

Man, you're having some luck with that car. Glad you're OK though!

The deer was going from left to right? (Left front impact?) How the heck did it bust the right window?


The Insight is still powering on, but there is a bit of a smell.
Gamey, I imagine. (Sorry!)

Don't think venison. The meat is terrible from the impact mushing it all up. It will taste awful.

Looks like your frame isn't tweaked! Lucky you.
