A friend picked me up the other day and I was like--when did you get a new car? The answer--last week, after the old car hit a deer and totalled it (the car, but probably the deer, too. )
I was stopped at a traffic light in "rush" hour traffic and a deer ran in front of my car and brushed against it. I wasn't moving! So the deer hit me, not the other way around! No damage to my car, so I'm assuming the deer was more embarrassed than anything.
Back in the dark ages when ESPN2 would run the short programs, we didn't have that as part of our cable package, but a friend of mine who lived about 45 minutes away did get it. So I found myself driving to her house and watching it in their basement. It started at like 11:30pm and ran until probably 1:30am, so needless to say, they all went to bed. I left when it was over, got in my car, pulled out of their driveway and was almost instantly accosted by a gang of deer. Probably 8-10 of them, literally surrounding my car and looking at me. I didn't want to start beeping the horn since it was 1:30am and the neighborhood wouldn't have appreciated that. I rolled down the window a bit and was all "ok, shoo! Seriously, you're all freaking me out. Let me go! I'm a vegetarian. Please move!" I tried driving super slowly, and they just followed along. Finally, I guess they got bored with me, and let me go. I'm still a little traumatized.
I did see a highway accident once where about half the deer was in the passenger seat, antlers-first. No way someone could have survived that. I can't imagine how freaked out the driver was.
When I moved to a deer-ish area, someone gave me deer whistles for my car. Knock wood, 100% effective.
