I hit a deer tonight
November 28, 2022 8:54pm CST
On my way home from my sister's house I hit a deer. It was dark. The deer did not seem to stop and neither did I. Until the sheriff in my county pulled me over. Told me my headlight was out, but he had not been going to stop me, because I looked like I had hit a deer. However I was throwing debris off my car and it hit him. We established that my tags and insurance and license were good. He told me I needed to call the other county where it happened and file a report. Damage is minimal and I have minimal insurance on this old car. The dispatch said I did not have to file a report if I chose not to. Tomorrow Bob will talk with our mechanic and see about getting the repairs. Meanwhile, I have had a shower and i need to go to bed.

That is weird the cop told you that you had to report it. I have bare minimum insurance so if I hit a deer it wouldn’t do me any good to call them. Most things are better left unfixed and unreported if possible as any reports cause insurance rates to go up so much
