That is simply terrible Scott. Best wishes for your continuing recovery. Hope those get resolved.
Thank you. As far as I know the deer into the windshield did not set off sensors. The tree (bumper) would kicked them all off and provided a 'cocoon' of airbags. My son and officer confirmed we ended up against a tree (very few in the area). Our Verizon coverage on all our trips has been very good.I'm so sorry for your unlucky experience. I hope you recover speedily and completely. Did the car have any sort of automatic braking and did it react to the flying deer and/or tree? You were lucky to have cell phone signal in that sparse area of Wyoming, on I-90 I assume. My best to you.
It certainly makes me think twice about driving a convertible, a T-top, targa top, or one of those cars where you can open a giant sunroof nearly all the way open. I think I saw a Lincoln on the road playing with their sunroof last fall where the entire roof was glass and the roof slid all the way back over the rear window. Of course it's not every day that you have to worry about flying deer. But it could have been anything flying. When I was about 10 years old, a giant truckload of railroad ties spilled all over the highway causing flying damage to dozens of vehicles including popped tires, broken windows, and holy cars. it happened in front of us, so we crept through the aftermath.Unfortunate that it came through the windshield. I don't think that Tesla is any more liable to have that happen than any other vehicle though.
