    My 17yr old daughter hit a deer and is very upset because it looks as though she was nursing a fawn. I reassured her that there was nothing she could have done because the deer came out of now where. My daughters fine...just a bit shook up. The police came out filed a report and my husband is gutting the deer, theres not reason she should just lay along the road....poor girl:(

    Quote:I'm pretty sure that a 17 year old girl would be feeling more than sorry for the deer. Killing anything, especially accidentally can be traumatic. It's not her fault though. Deer are frighteningly unpredictable near roads. One tried to jump over my grandfather's car when I was a kid. She landed on top of the car, crushed the roof and almost killed him. You just don't know what they'll do.

    I hit a deer when I was 17 too. It t must be a new driver rite of passage.

    I was going over 65... totaled my car!

    It was soooooo scarry. It happened so fast!

    Poor thing. She (and you... maybe not your car!) Will be just fine!
