    I am sooooo sad, my beautiful car is a beauty no more. When it happened I seemed to drift off in a shocked emulsification. I just pulled over afterwards and about had a stroke on the spot from the grief.

    It was impossible not to hit the creature unless I was going to crash into the car driving next to me as soon as I crossed the Ohio/PA border on route 51. The deer was caught in the middle road barrier and decided to try and get back to the woods when I was cruising on by.

    I am sad because I want my car back but am nervous because of the age of the vehicle. Anyone deal with insurance on this issue? Any ideas or tips are much appreciated. She was/is a grand cruiser with hopefully many, many, many more miles to go...the sideview mirror is gone too....

    Wow – that’s some real bad luck.
    But more important is that all the humans are OK – the car can be fixed.

    I don’t know what the insurance company will do or say, but just looking at the pics, it looks to me to be quite repairable.
    The problem area most likely will be the door frame/hinge area.
    Ask around and see if anyone you know has had any experiences with the local auto body/repair shops.
    Get their input - see what they say about the damage, and if they have any creative ideas on how you can repair and keep the car.

    I hope it all works out for you – your Continental appears to be in very good condition.
    It would be a shame to lose it.
