May 10, 2007: Deer accident [warning very graphic and gruesome]



This is what happens when you hit a deer at 70MPH, reports xoB as he sends along this set.





To me, shots 2 and 3 are the most remarkable. Damn head and tail separated, and missing a body. Where did the body wind up?







Ugh.



Griff  Thursday May 10 07:39 AM

Any word on the driver's survival, so we can dicuss shishcabob(sp?)?



Bromskloss  Thursday May 10 08:01 AM

Oh dear, is that the liver on the floor of the back seat?



Dagney  Thursday May 10 08:30 AM

I didn't know venison went well with diet coke. Ugh.



chrisinhouston  Thursday May 10 08:35 AM

I don't care what the insurance company says, total that one out!

Funny thing is that they probably will total it out and then it will get auctioned off to those guys from south of the border who come up here in caravans to buy cars to take back south and resell. We see them all the time in Texas towing cars southbound.



maximum  Thursday May 10 09:45 AM

no airbag? that car looks like a pretty recent model and i would have thought it had an airbag. can anyone tell by the look of the steering wheel whether or not it has one?

if so, i wonder why it didn't go off, and what repercussions that had for the driver.

What makes you think that stuff inside is from the deer?


Sundae  Thursday May 10 11:10 AM

Sometimes IoTD makes me worry about myself.
For no reason I can determine the pictures struck me as really funny...



rfoxx  Thursday May 10 11:13 AM

A few thoughts on this: It looks like the deer didn't even hit the bumper, so the airbag sensor didn't get set off. Although, I'm not sure an airbag would have helped much here. 2. There's a big difference between 60 MPH and 70 MPH. A little slower and it might not have gone through the windshield. 3. Deer are idiots! And they can leap anything. I've seen them just bound in from the side of the road. The one you hit won't just be standing there. They come from the side. 4. At night, I really prefer roads with wide open fields along the side. Moonless nights and rain are better, too. The deer bed down. But when driving through wooded country with a full moon, watch out!



glatt  Thursday May 10 11:13 AM

The driver is very lucky the deer got split in two and mostly stayed outside of the car. The driver got a high speed innards shower, but innards are mostly soft. All the hard bony bits stayed outside.

The driver was able to recover from the impact and pull the SUV over to the shoulder to stop nicely. Even parked parallel to the pavement! Very lucky indeed. It could have been much much worse.

That guy is going to need the big bottle of shampoo.

We were driving home with our christmas tree this past holiday, on a rural road between 2 cornfields, and noticed a herd of deer running towards the road. Jim slowed down and flashed his lights a few times at the 2 cars coming towards us, who's view of the deer was obstructed by a house.
The deer crossed the road just in front of our car. Most passed behind the first car oncoming car and in front of the second, but one didn't make it. Landed on the front of the second car (going 50-60ish) and then smashed the winshield and exploded in a cloud of fur.
The driver was able to pull over and was not hurt.


freshnesschronic  Thursday May 10 02:42 PM

I've swerved (sp?) for deer before. But I cannot imagine this, spilling guts and blood ONTO me after splitting the dear in half? That is intense shiiiiet.



CharlieG  Thursday May 10 03:05 PM

what a waste of venison

BTW You do know that deer are the most deadly animal in North America?



Sheldonrs  Thursday May 10 04:28 PM

Pie  Thursday May 10 04:44 PM

I hit a deer once. Didn't kill it, though. I was only going ~20mph when I hit it (BREAK!) He put a good dent on my hood, but didn't do any other damage, and ran away pretty fast.

I can't imagine dealing with deer dissection (bi-section?) on this scale.

Lucky it wasn't a Moose.

There were 4 elk hit on the freeway (I-70) here yesterday or the day before. An elk (500-700 lb) is much bigger than a deer, but smaller than a moose. (I know, technically an elk is a deer.) Also, elk have huge racks. Huge.

Aliantha  Thursday May 10 07:02 PM

We hit roos here. They can cause a fair amount of damage too.

Nasty stuff that one though. I don't think roos have that much guts.

SPUCK  Friday May 11 05:25 AM

I am amazed that everything is Brite RED! Blood usually heads to brown really fast.

That is most the deer XOXO, they aren't all that long.

I think he was going much faster than 70MPH. The spray pattern and the fact that stuff streamed heavily to the back windows also speaks for a higher speed than 70MPH. And NO! The driver is not going to say, "Yeah I was going 85 or 90MPH when the deer jumped out officer". No skid marks prevents any verification ability too.

Air bags are dangerous enough that they are not to go off in accidents slower than about 15-20MPH. The only way the system can estimate the speed is by the vehicle deceleration rate. A 70 pound deer cannot decelerate a 3,500 pound car rapidly enough to allow the system to equate a +15MPH wreck is occurring.

A guy and his wife were driving here a few years ago and a deer did this same thing. They were going 45MPH. The deer's hoof came thru the windshield and killed the man's wife. It was very sad.

I saw a cow hit in Texas by a car. It wasn't pretty.

My Dad's brother who had my Dad riding on the back of his Harley hit a Black Angus steer on a rural road in WA. It knocked him unconscious. My Dad was still functional. He drug his brother out of the road. Got the bike up. Jumped on it and got going for help. He'd never driven a motorcycle before. The country road he was racing down came to and end, crossing-the-T with another road. Caught by surprise he turned the throttle the wrong way and shot across the intersection through a board fence.

He said he had so much fun he went out and bought his own Harley. Of course I was not allowed near one of those donorcycles. LOLO



TheMercenary  Friday May 11 09:21 AM

This re-enforces that fact that I need to kill more deer next year when season opens.

Jeez, you have to not be paying attention AT ALL to hit a cow...in Texas! It's not like cows make a habit of suddenly run into roads. And if they did, you'd be able to see them coming for miles.

I almost hit two cows once on my mountain bike. I was coming down hill pretty fast, but they didn't seem concerned at all.

Of course, they were wearing leather.

All bets are off at night.

Well in defence of the guy it was night and there were tanks firing HEAT rounds about 70 yards away.
Which was a l i t t l e distracting.

I have to admit, I didn't consider that scenario.


SPUCK  Saturday May 12 03:18 AM

Yes.. A rarely considered situation.

"But officer there were tanks firing!!!"



bluecuracao  Saturday May 12 03:34 AM

What the heck was he doing driving near firing tanks? And why weren't those cows herded home by then??

Oh yeah, it was in Texas.



SPUCK  Saturday May 12 04:56 AM

Hey.. Ft. Hood, TX is a strange place. The freeway runs right thru a tank range. I was there to watch the tanks cuz you could just pull over on the other side of the highway and sit on a hill 100yards from them and watch them team tag practice in the dark. It was quite the rush. To top off the night as we left and were about 10 miles down the freeway I was pulled over by a helicopter!!!!! And a deuce-and-a-half. They'd had a report of someone stopping to watch on the wrong side of the road... Luckily we weren't and my brother out ranked them all.

Is it just me or is there too much blood on the driver seat and headrest? I'd assume the driverís body would have caught the brunt of the "blood bath", thereby leaving the seat much cleaner.

Cows like to lay on warm concrete at night. I well know.

Still no pictures of the driver's seat except a little bit of the headrest and upper back.
