The reason: “A deer hit me in broad daylight,” Gregory says. “I was coming home from a kids soccer game in Lee’s Summit.”
How many points?
“Uh, I don’t think it had horns,” he says. “I was actually on the phone when it happened, but I wasn’t drinking. I was distracted when the deer plowed into my car but I stayed in my lane.”
So Gregory got sideswiped is his story?
“Yes, luckily my car was a Land Cruiser,” he says. “If it was a (rice rocket) like you drive you wouldn’t be here writing the story. Otherwise it would have been in my lap, so there’s something to be said for gas guzzling SUVs. They’re definitely deer proof.”
“I didn’t go back for it,” Gregory says. “What was I going to do? I’m not a veterinarian. I mean, they’re not going to send an air ambulance helicopter.”
The moral of Gregory’s tale: “Be safe and drive SUVs, kids.”
