Got in a car accident last night (some pics)
 
In Jersey last night (I live in Philly, but spend a lot of my time in south Jersey where a lot of family lives) and driving home from a friends house. South Jersey's got a lot of woods and ****. Driving on a road going through the woods, deer runs out in front of my car. Swerved to the left to miss the deer (I've hit them before, cost $1100 to fix that damage) and swerved so hard that the car lost control, swerved back and slid to the right right into a side railing. When I hit that railing my head went up and hit the windshield. Hit that railing so hard that my car bounced all the way to the other side of the road into another railing.

I was okay and got out the car and was able to move it to the other side of the road. Couldn't find my cell phone in my car but a lady stopped and let me use hers to place a call. And the ****ed up part...all this happened a mile from the house I was headed to.

Went to the hospital to get checked on my head and all x-rays were negative. Got a hard head I guess. So I take it to the body shop this morning (the car didn't look too bad at all, most of the damage to the bumper and of course the windshield) thinkin that I was going to pay a bit of money but nothing to break my pocket for the next year. Turns out my whole body frame is all shifted over to the passenger side. That alone is going to cost me over 2 grand. The car on kbb.com is only worth $2100. What a *****. Guess I'm lookin at a new car.




The rear passenger side tire.







Where my head hit the windshield



Where my head hit from the inside




Overall, pretty lucky. If the railing wasn't there I would have been going straight into some trees. Could have been hurt pretty bad or even worse dead. **** deer.

Wow that sucks. Thats pretty funny how the parts of a car are way more expensive than the whole car.

Wow, looking at that windshield it's great luck that you weren't seriously hurt. It sounds like the only damage done was to the car. Probably a nuisance and a financial burden to get it fixed but in the grand scheme of things it could've been a whole lot worse. Gotta count your blessings or w/e you want to call it.

Glad to hear you are doing ok. Deers scare me driving to NJ especially when I used to frequent Atlantic City Casinos alot. I go home late and see packs of them on the road. All it takes is one to dart. I usually be tired but when i see them I'm alert. Scary accident. That lady who pulled over should have kidnapped you then possibly killed you. Kinda like a movie where a Detective must find you before your doom. Lets go with a sexy detective, a rookie. Not a movie in theatre since this kind of flick exists already. But straight to cable when you need something to watch.

How did you hit your head on the windsheild? Someone wasnt wearing thier seat belt?

Don't blame your accident on the deer. It had the right of way.

Guys insurance rates do not go up if you hit deer....

Just slow down to reduce damage but it's better to hit a deer than it is to wreck and not hit a deer..... Much better... Also if you see a deer lay on your horn that will usually send them back into the woods.

You realize deers have totalled peoples car and even killed them? Yes slow down after going 60mph while honking the horn. Your ride will be cool. Oh and it'll send the deer back into the woods to shyt and eat some oates. :oldlol:

Stop just stop.

Unless you hit one on a interstate you shouldn't be doing 60... And if you are you should be able to see them thats why interstates cut grass on the side.....

If you want to be an idiot and go into other lanes and get hit head on to avoid a 200lb animal go ahead... but I'll take my chance getting killed by a 200lb object vs a 3,000 lb car... :oldlol:

Obviously it's going to kill the deer but if you really think trying to maneuver other than come to a controlled stop as fast as possible in most cases is a good idea you are a **** tard...

Honestly I can't remember. I usually wear it but I can't remember if I was or not. Sure sounds like I wasn't though.
