Most know what I do for a job, but just wanted to tell you about this collision I had the night before last. I was going to a job and on a clear open road, which was a straight dual carriageway with a national speed limit. It was well lit, having double street lamps along the inside (between the 2 Armco barriers) and only one other car on the road. I was travelling at about 115mph in my works BMW 530 estate to a report of a drink driver. As I reached an area where one of the lamps were out a deer ran from my nearside straight in front of my car. I had no chance to stop or slow enough o avoid hitting it. The recorded collision (by the cars black box) was 99mph. This always underestimates as it doesn't take into account the speed that is lost when you hit something, but the speed immediately prior was 110mph. The deer exploded its insides all over the car. Luckily when I hit it, it pushed it forward. If it had launched it into the air it may have come through the windscreen and easily killed me.... a sobering thought. I was shook up of course, but also annoyed at damaging a car. Damage to the car is front bumper, grills, radiator, bonnet and various mounts on the chassis. The car is wrote off. This was a perfect road in perfect conditions, but just one of those unexpected things. The whole thing was caught on the in car cctv system, but not sure if I am allowed to show it or not. I will have to ask permission from work. It is gruesome viewing though. Last night I had to suffer the stick from my colleagues, calling me Bambi killer, saying Christmas is cancelled this year as I killed Rudolph, finding a sticker of a deer on my box where I keep my work and a cut out of antlers on the front of the car I used last night. This is just to show to people that no matter who you are, how great the conditions are, its still so easy to have a crash which could potentially be fatal.
