Post subject: Here's a puzzler for ya!

I thought this was kinda interesting, and puzzling, so I'm submitting it for opinions and see what you think...a single-vehicle car accident, no injuries, but with a bizarre description, and very odd forensics.

Assuming that the images aren't photochopped (they don't look it to me and the accident victim seems sincere), what possibilities for the cause might anyone be able to think of?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

General Description:

A young woman was driving at 40-45 mph along Lake Cook Road, when her car suddenly lurched to the right for no reason that was apparent to her. There were no cars within sight on the road, and she had not seen any pedestrian or animal near the car. She stopped her car immediately, got out, and apparently was flabbergasted by the appearance of the left side of her automobile.

The investigating police officer could not provide an adequate explanation for the damage. He noted that there was no damaged paint, and no animal hair, feathers, or blood, evident on the damaged area of the car.

If any of the visitors to our site have ever witnessed this type of damage to a car, we would welcome comments or suggestions.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The witness (driver's) account:


Date: 11/04/08
Time: 21:20
City: Northbrook
State: IL

The entire left side of my car appears to be scorched but no paint was removed.

I was driving 40-45 miles per hour heading north toward I-94 East towards Chicago on Lake Cook Road. While I was in the middle lane, I felt a nudge on the left of my car which made my car shift to the right. I did not swerve out of the lane and gained control back quickly.

I slowed down and as I got my bearings, I realized that my left side mirror was knocked off and so I turned right onto Revere Drive and put on my hazard lights.

I got out of the car and saw that I had several dents on the side of my car. There were two that were deeper and larger than the others; one was located in front of the rear wheel and the other was in the center of the driver door.

I called 911 to file a police report and the officer said that I was side swiped by another car but, there were not any cars around me before or after the hit and also there were no paint scratches from other cars on my car.

despite lack of hair or blood, I'm thinking deer strike with deer moving laterally into car. after dark she might not have seen it and it jumped or ran sideways into the car. I have personally been involed in a deer accident where the buck struck the left front corner of the car in that fashion and even thought the der was hurled backwards over top of the car in the air and the front end was totally wrecked, there was no blood, hide or hair on the car. My two cents
