Wow. A lot of damage; did any airbags pop? You're lucky it didn't come through the window - seen that happen.

FYI, there are over 300K deer (or other large animals) collisions per year in the US. Probably somewhere north of $1B cost per year. They estimate around $3k/collision just in property damage. It's become a really big problem:

There's a big project on I90 WA State trying to reduce collisions: http://i90wildlifebridges.org/ that's a little more enviro-focused.
