How I Think My Ford Explorer Saved My Life

Driving home South on I 57 (I have a 55 minute commute each way) I was in the fast lane when 2 fully grown deer ran across the highway right in front of me. I couldn't swerve to the right as there were 2 semi trucks coming up fast on that side, and I would probably hit the second deer anyway. . It was pointless swerving to the left because I would be in the center of the South and North bound highways and would likely have rolled or sped onto the oncoming traffic North Bound so in that split second I decided to just keep straight and hope for the best. I hit the deer head on and was able to walk away without a scratch. My poor Ford Explorer took the brunt of the impact and I truly think saved my life. People laughed at me because of driving such a "large" SUV and paying for the extra gas but I always felt safe in this vehicle and obviously I was. My next car will be a Ford Explorer. Lynn M.
