Totaled my car today

Was driving around a turn when a surprise deer made an appearance. I swerved (mistake #1), broke loose, tried to correct, and hit a grass embankment, and flipped over. Fortunately I was able to walk away from it all.

Will definitely be a total loss. Very sad day for me. I loved that car.
Not sure what I'll do next, maybe a C7 is in my future, but I may wait until they price the z/28.
Not sure if I want to post a photo or not

Are you kidding me? I was just about to PM you about a Travi$ Scott track and was lookin' forward to meeting up.

Sorry to hear about what happened man. Vehicles can be replaced but a human being can't. Glad to hear your ok and looking forward to what your next vehicle purchase is. Is anything atleast salvageable? It could always go on your next ZL1?...

Lol one of my wheels is ok, but it was pretty bad. And I don't really like the styling of the rear on the 2014's, so if I got another Z, it'd have to be a 12 or 13 MY.

Thanks for the well wishes, everyone! I'm fine, just a little bruise on my forearm and the inside of my right knee.
Very blessed to be okay. I have a new lease in life

Be careful when you're swerving to miss stuff people! In all my years as a deputy I've never seen anyone seriously hurt from a car-deer crash. On the other hand, I've seen many seriously injured from accidents like this after someone swerves.

Not knocking anyone or their driving abilities here as I know most times its just a reaction.

Sorry to hear about your car.

WOW....... Lucky and glad to hear you're ok and walked away.

Damn deer anyway, I've dealt with way more than my fair share over the years where I live in WNY.

I'm sorry for the loss of your bodacious ride, but glad you live to drive again.

Deer are my biggest worry when I'm on the bike.

Life & limb come first, Bro - but I still weep for the machine with you.

Glad you are ok. Told my wife if a deer ever jumps in front of her hit the brakes but NEVER SWERVE to miss. That is what kills people losing control of the car.

That really sucks but glad you walked away unharmed! That must have scared the crap out of you. That car is definitely totaled by the looks of the picture.

The rear of the 14 is not that bad. You need to see it in person and it grows on you.
