Deer meets one week old X5

My wife picked up her new X5 5.0 last week. Yesterday, with less then 400 miles on the car, a deer attempted to jump across the country highway she was driving. She didn't even see the deer until it appeared in her windshield, 1/100 of a second before impact. Because the deer was jumping and in mid-air, the first thing it hit was her windshield. Then somehow it flipped onto the roof, destroying the sunroof, and also flipped onto the driver's side, smashing the passenger window and door. Had to be towed, due to the windshield damage. The car, however, was still drivable, and probably helped save her life. The police who showed up were amazed she wasn't hurt, or that the car hadn't flipped.

X5 saved her life, or at least prevented significant injury. My guess is 10-15K of damage.

If I've done this correctly, here is a link to some pics on facebook:
