totally busted up my car (update w/ pics)

Swerved left to avoid hitting a deer, but the road took a sharp right at the same time... Rolled through a bunch of small trees onto the roof. The entire drivers side is pretty well crushed up, the roof is crushed in, both bumpers fell off, hatch doesn't close, etc etc. Luckily there were zero injuries though, not as much as a single cut or bruise.

Ok here are the pics of where I crashed and the aftermath. Looking back, it's pretty lucky that the drivers door opened at all after the crash. Both passenger side doors were buried deep enough in the mud that there is no way they would open, the rear drivers side door was absolutely crunched, so it never would have opened, the hatch was stuck in some trees or something, so it wouldn't open, and even if we had kicked out the windshield, there wasn't enough room to get out. All that crap inside the car is the front and rear bumpers, they completely tore off in the crash. After we got out of the car, we saw the front bumper just chillin' back up on the road without a scratch on it, it was kinda wierd.

Play safe out there guys, it doesn't take much...
