one ran out beside me then ran along next to me for a bit, scared the jesus out of me. At least you didnt try and swerve to miss it as you could have lost it and crashed!

i had a deer run out in front of me once in my work van, i reacted by swerving and braking. i didn't hit him but this is how i ended up.

Thank god for ESP and a low CofG on most cars. You can keep yer SUVs and off-roaders, and stuff em where the sun don't shine.

nope, it was sliding perfectly fine, it was hitting the stump of a hedge with the front wheel whilst going sideways that threw it over. esp would have saved me.

when i had the accident my employer had a crash investigation done by an ex-copper who runs his own firm doing these investigations and he said that the same or similar outcome would have happened with a normal family car.
