summit vs. deer

was on my home from west virginia from an atv trip. had the cruise at 70 which is the speed limit. checked my right to switch lanes in the little time it took i look back and a deer is standing dead center with my driver seat.. bam. didnt even feel anything except noise. i was towing probably 3000 lbs. figured id better check the damage, ddddaaammmnn. had 260 miles to go and it took 4 hrs to patch the hole in the top of my radiator. made it the whole way fine and still was as quiet as can be. initial estimate was 4600.

No warning. I think the speed and the corner didn't give it time.
