Much sup­port af­ter col­li­sion with deer

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

My daugh­ter and I were on our way to Costco when a deer leaped out on Re­gent Av­enue just past Plessis Road.

The deer shat­tered my wind­shield and dam­aged parts of the front end of my new car, which only had about 2,300 kilo­me­tres on it. I pulled my car onto a side street to com­pose my­self af­ter the shock.

Thanks to the sev­eral driv­ers who stopped to make sure we were all right.

Spe­cial thanks to the lady driv­ing a red truck who stopped to check on us and said she had called the police about the accident and the deer.

Many thanks to Evan Chrisp and his wife, Sook, who stopped to give us their in­for­ma­tion to be wit­nesses. They stayed with us un­til the fire depart­ment and tow truck came.

Thanks to all the fire­fight­ers who stayed with us, too, and showed so much con­cern for our well be­ing.

I am so happy and thank­ful for the kind­ness of all th­ese peo­ple who gave up their time to make sure we were safe.
