Hit a deer (?????)

Driving to work this AM, turned on to a road and began to accelerate to 35 40 mph...All of a sudden, I hear a giant 'bang' on the side of my car and the side view mirror is snapped and hanging by the cable...pulled over and called the police. He says I likely hit a deer...there was no sign of anything when I backtracked a few minutes later. There are no other markings other than where it snapped. I personally thought the offending object fell from above (was driving under some over hanging trees thought it was possible a branch fell, since we just had a wind storm the other day...but once again, no evidence of that)

 

So, would a deer just run off back into the woods after taking a hit? It was a wooded, aqua-duct area to my left and residential homes on my right. Object hit from my left and as far as I can tell, it was a broadside hit and the front bumper was not at all involved. If it was a deer, it literally would have had to jump right into the side of my car/mirror

 

I'm having chit luck this past week :-(

If a deer broke off your mirror there should be deer hair inbedded in it somewhere. And yes, a deer can take a car hit and run off.

They do this stupid chit all the time. Amazes me such a beautiful, aware, critter in the woods, and then they think,I'll just do something really stupid. 

 

It's not built into their DNA to protect themselves from this self carnage on the highways.

You called the police and said what ?

That something hit my car...the idea that it was a deer was nowhere in my head until he said that's what it was. And while I did drive the car back home, I initially didn't think I could drive the car like that

It could have been just the mirror. I was driving through a parking lot and heard the same loud bang, I thought my car got hit with something. Turns out it was just the belt that adjusts the mirror. A little electric tape and I was on my way like nothing happened. Scared the crap out of me though.
