I have been very harsh on aldon for his off field antics this off season but this is a non story and he is very very lucky. i did not think the deer problem was bad out west like it is here in iowa. at this time of the year they are mating , the farmers are harvesting so this happens all the time cuz they damn things are running all over hell.. there was a serious injury sounds like to one of the guys but aldon got lucky. they are far from the bambi creatures we have been led to believe. could have occured to anyone, he was lucky.

we can not let deer dictate our lives
Ya there's absolutely nothing to blame Aldon for, just unlucky that another 'something' had to involve him of all people
Car crash?!?!

We need to get him a bullet proof hummer
Someone give this guy these things, now!

  1. Rabbit's foot
  2. 4-Leaf Clover
  3. Lucky Charms
  4. Horseshoe

and only let him out of his house on Sunday's.

i know it sounds dumb but in iowa they stress,, not to avoid or swerve when you see a deer coming,,, best just to hit the damn thing. your car will get f**ked up but at least you will not roll over. one night i almost hit a dog, a deer and a stupid cow in the same night. they kept getting bigger the cow would have killed me but i would have been able to see my boyhood dead dog mrs bojangles whom i still miss very much

only about 45 miles per hour on a back road. in iowa during the fall time you get used to slowing down your speed out in the country cuz you know the damn deer are out there just waiting to run across the road. now the darn cow got loose somehow from his pasture and i just remember seeing this damn black shape come up out of the ditch so when the driver with aldon was going 70 or so you can not do much when they run across the road. They just stand there in the road sometimes, thus, the deer in the headlight expression( good iowa knowledge for you guys )

Seriously! Interesting they didn't cite the speed...can see a couple young guys driving up the desolate, windy hills to Aldon's house balls-out around mid-night on Friday. That's just speculation of course; bummer the guy has a broken back! And thank God Aldon is alright. But yeah...the dude just needs to stay home and play Madden at this point; he's got some bad, BAD luck! Avoid that Sophomore jinx.

does not matter the speed when a deer is involved. when they come up upon you and you swerve, you can roll over in a second. . i am not s**tting you guys. i work at a radio and tv station out in the country and there are four deer standing across the road right now just looking around getting ready to make a dash across the road. they are bad at this time of the year.. just bad luck as NC said

True! It generally takes a weird angle or a lot of force to break a back BUT if the ditch they drove down in was steep, speed may not have been an issue; you never know how you're going to react in a situation like that (dodge or run over) are you're only two options!

I was taught to brake and kill the headlights. The headlights freeze the dear.

A friend of mine used to go to the dog races in Iowa.
The only night he won, he hit a dear on the way back to Sioux Falls.
He had to pay a fine and fix his car. His winnings did not cover the costs.
