As I was driving along Vale road at high speed in my Prius with my family. I noticed that there was a Deer on the side of the road. As I came near it, it decided to cross the road. I started to hit my brakes and I saw that the Deer saw me as it put its foot on the road. I figured, “Ah Ha!” it will not continue onto the road and I could stop hitting my brakes. I was wrong. It decided to “Go for it”, trusting in its speed to cross the road. Stupid deer. It timed its crossing so that I would be forced to hit it. I hit my brakes harder as the deer was running broadside so it would be easier to hit. My anti-lock braking system started to do its buzzing thing as I hit the brakes really hard. My left front bumper struck the deer with a loud THUMP which sent the deer sliding on its side across the road. I watched its legs kicking the air as it tried to get back on its feet. I figured that I had broken its back legs and I was about to witness something horrible as it tried to stand up. It finally got its feet under itself and started running towards the woods as I failed to see any dangling appendages on the deer. But it seemed uninjured and disappeared into the woods. So I kept on driving down the road to my destination where my car did not show any damage.
