My missus was very luck not to get hurt with her deer encounter:

MtnGuy, you and your missus are extremely lucky. The Man upstairs was surely looking after her.

All depends, by a basic physics definition it would depend on who occupied that point in space first. Since vehicles are typically going faster than a deer, the deer would have occupied that point in space first, therefore the car hit it.

Mntguy your wife was very lucky. Several years ago in Newago county in Mi a deer went through the windshield and ended up in the back seat. Killed three lady's. I know the EMT that answered the call. He said it was one of his worse encounters. The deer jumped from a high spot on the roadside and never touched anything but windshield as it went through.

This deer also came from a high bank. Fortunately, the force of the impact mostly hit the roof of the car instead of the windshield. When a door was closed, you could see the windshield "breathe" out.....there wasn't much structural integrity left. The only damage was to the roof, windshield, and 1 windshield wiper......we think 1 of the hoofs damaged the windshield wiper.

I think we all need a release from the seriousness of the deer accidents. I propose viewing this as a reminder that deer are our friends:

Glad you're family is OK.
If people like us didn't hunt 'em there'd be *many* more deer/passenger vehicle collisions. We're doing our part regarding "animal control".
