65 mph+ W208 deer collision.

It was strange. I didn't really feel anything including fear. Airbag did not deploy and I don't think it should have done so in this situation. I really felt no shock in the passenger cabin at all. The hood took the brunt of the damage. The windshield is not cracked and the sides of the car look perfect.

This is my first and hopefully last accident with a Mercedes. I am now even more convinced about the main reason why I drive them.

I can't thank the engineers at Mercedes Benz enough.

If the insurance company totals it, I will replace it with another Mercedes of course. Maybe get me a convertible version this time.
