No pics yet I'll put them up in morn....

Basically drivin to work yesterday morn come to corner ive driven round numerous times, next thing there's a deer laying in road, no time to swerve, brake, to avoid it, so my escort ends up goin straight over the top of it, launching it in the air, manage to control it as back end lands stopped the car, it was a bloody great stag, the car coming the other way stopped, see if I was ok as, as deer was obviously dead we pulled it to the verge, phoned police told them said we'll send some one out to move, basically they didn't want to know as usual....

Managed to drive car to work now needs, front bumper, radiator, air con rad, radiator support, possibly front cross member, will see when we take it apart...

Why the person that obviously hit it before me, left it laying there and didn't attempt to move it, to avoid another accident I don't know cause I didn't have time and hit it, I just didn't want someone to come round corner swerve or hit it then hit on coming traffic causing a bad accident....

Proudly pushing in front of people who dare to leave the smallest amount of space since 2002.

He said he did, yes!
Andy, what do you mean by the police " didn't want to know as usual...."
They told you they would send someone out to move it, what more could they say? :unsure:

If I hit a deer I'm pretty sure the majority of it would end up in little tubs/bags in the freezer :roll:
