It’s 900 pounds of elk versus 1600 pounds of Smart Fortwo, and the driver walks away:

A lot to be said for that little safety cage. And better yet, the car is so small that the critter couldn’t come crashing through the windshield.

Not so lucky: an elk. We may never hear that new theory about the brontosaurus.

    Can’t say I blame him for the brand loyalty.

    A colleague of mine had to have extensive bodywork done on his Prius after hitting an armadillo. Granted, the thing jumped up and bounced around the front passenger wheel well (where most of the damage was), but still.

    I also had a colleague get his Geo Metro totaled by what he described as a “kamikaze cat.”

    A third colleague wrecked a Motor Pool car when a deer hit it.

    Yeah….not sure I’d ever want to ride as a passenger with any of those guys.
