As a result, the front end of the SUV suffered some damage.

However, the damages are still relatively normal considering the fact that the SUV hit a large animal like a cow. We must understand, that such animals can cause even larger damage to vehicles. Hence, this result is acceptable. No one got injured in this incident and even the airbags didn’t get deployed due to the speeds being not high enough.

Follow Traffic Rules
Most accidents on roads happen when drivers don’t follow the traffic rules. The most commonly violated law is overspeeding. People have the habit of disrespecting the speed limits quite often. We know that animals appearing on our roads is a rather common phenomenon. Therefore, we have the best chances to react appropriately only when we are driving at a controlled speed.
