Oh Deer!

On my way home from work tonight I hit a deer on Sheridan Road in Winthrop Harbor.  Huge one ran out onto the highway right in front of me and I never saw him coming.  Car might be totaled.  After the traffic behind me came to a screeching halt, I tried to get out of my car in the middle of the street with the deer laid flat out on the highway, and suddenly he jumps up on hit feet again, shakes it off, and heads back into the woods!  I guess I only stunned him!  I’m fine, no injuries, just a really messed up car.  It isn’t driveable, it lost a lot of fluids and the fender is pushed up to the tire on the passenger’s side.  The passenger-side headlight area is totally destroyed and the electrical system is freaking out with everything flickering on and off.
