Watch for critters while driving at night in the south, deer primarily. They’re large enough to cause a serious accident.
If you even think you see eyes glinting red or yellow off in the trees or bushes, ease off and prepare to brake or take evasive action. Unless you’re in a big SUV and well off the ground, you really don’t want to hit one at highway speeds.
I was at March AFB when we lost one of our air traffic controllers to a deer crash.
She was driving a Honda Si when she hit it late at night.
The Highway patrol said the deer was still alive when it went through the windshield and landed in the passenger's set on it's back.
They said the deer had hit her in the neck with it's hoof and cut her jugular vein wide open.
She was dead on the scene when they arrived, and they had to shoot the deer due to a broken leg.
