It started with a car accident...

My daughter is not a great communicator. If I ever send her a text, I’m lucky if I get a response in 72 hours. And I don’t think that she has answered her phone in the past 10 years. So last Wednesday, when my phone rang at 11:37pm, and I saw her caller ID I knew that it was not a good sign.

She, her fiance and their animals (two dogs and a cat) had been on their way to Toronto for their wedding when a deer struck their car. As the dash cam footage has shown, they were in the passing lane when a shadow shot between two transport trucks ahead of them. When the deer realized that the centre median was too high to jump, it decided to run back.
