Illustration for article titled Miata + Deer =

I'm happy I'm safe and nobody was hurt, but this sucks. It was dusk on Saturday and a buck bolted right out of the woods in front of me- I was going about 40mph and had no chance. I did manage to slow down so his legs didn't go through my windshield. He flopped up on the hood and destroyed both of the headlights, then popped back up and kept on running.


I also have no collision insurance so I gotta eat this one. Every part in the mechanism is destroyed on both headlights. Even the bracket that the frame and mechanism attaches to is bent out of shape. I might be able to salvage those and the motors, but everything else is finished. Bummer. Watch out for deer guys, this is the part of the year that they go crazy.
