Horse 1 - Hyundai 0

Nothing gets your heart to racing like a pre-dawn phone call...I got one at 5:20 this morning...never a good sign.

It was Rob and he was OK, but had been in an accident. In the state of Alabama during hunting season lots of people hit deer...leave it to one of us to smack right into a 2000 lb horse. It was pitch black dark and there were two horses that had apparently gotten loose...Rob had no chance to miss it.

It hit the front of the car, rolled up the hood, over the windshield, across the roof, down the rear windshield, and off the trunk. It did not cause the air bags to deploy and if he had not been wearing a seatbelt things would have turned out very differently.
His hands are scratched up but that was his only injury...an early Thanksgiving Blessing....

Holy crap! (I've always been good at copying other people's comments). Glad Rob is OK - how is the horse and what kind of new car are you looking at?

Holy crap. I duplicated sandy's.

Holy shit. I duplicated WT's words.

So glad he is OK.

I am guessing the horse had to be put down?

Seriously - please take a valium prior to going back to the car place to buy another.

Oh, my goodness! I'm so glad that he's alright. You aren't having good luck with vehicles right now.

My parents hit a cow once. Animals that large do some serious damage.
