Damn, that's a painful sight! I very nearly hit an elk this winter so I could imagine what it was like.

yeah it was no longer a cherry after that *tear* it ran into me @ about 55mph, i locked up my brakes and carried it all the way to a dead stop, through it another 50-100 feet to the median killing it instantly.

yes haveblue83, both bags did blow, little hard to see from the reflections but it was cracked pretty damn bad. the side air bags did NOT blow which was a little better. the whole dash needs replaced(which costs more then the airbags themselves) when the passenger one goes off. my 94 probe did the same thing and smashed the windshield. in both incidents, my passenger and i would have been better of without those damn airbags. they do more damage to both the occupants and causes more property damage.
