2008 Ford Edge Deer stike dashcam video

Recommended Posts

The video pretty much tells the story. $3,300.00 in damage. The insurance company will fix it!! I was surprised since it has 271,000 miles on it. The body shop stated that the damages according to their records only amounted to 30 percent of the value of the vehicle. These guys must run on a different set of papers than the car dealer as they say my car is only worth 2k for trade. LOL

A lot of people have asked me how I could stop then just go so quickly after hitting the deer. Experience has taught me that if you hit a deer you may have limited time in the winter to stay warm if the radiator is damaged. I usually head directly to the closest farm house or gas station etc. as quickly as possible while the car is still able to run. Never had a deer damage the steering/suspension but radiators do get damaged not the engine. Drive to safety quickly and to the closest safe location. The police will not get on you for leaving as long as you call them. Mostly you just need the police in order to document the accident for the insurance company. This was the least damage I have ever had from hitting a deer.

I've never had strays in my near-misses. Always a band of 3 or more. Just lucky I've never made contact, I guess.
