When Nature Strikes!

It was 10:15pm last night. We (wife, 16 yr daughter, and myself) were in Florida at my mother and father- end-laws. I was sound a sleep after a hard day on vacation and my cell phone rings. It announces that it's my other teenage daughter calling. It's very unusual to get a phone call from her because she only communicates by text message, plus we never get a text so late at night and a phone call is unheard of. She's a teenage college student attending Sewanee: The University of the South. I went from dead a sleep to fully awake in less than a 1 second. My mind started running wild thinking of what may have happened and  knowing this is not good.


I scrambled for the phone and finally answered "What's wrong." I hear sobbing and then "Dad I just, I just ........hit a deer." I asked " Are you OK." She answered "Yes, but my car is not." Then relief settles in and I realize everything will be fine. Here's the pictures she sent me today of her car, not too bad.

 
This deer will cost me a $500 deductible charge, but the other dear is doing well. "When Nature Strikes!"

It does look more like the deer hit her. Glad your daughter is OK.

Thanks Daniel, I think you are right and if you look close you can see the deer's face print.
