    @Zen walker: No info about causalities. It took place hours before and as i was running late i did't enquire much.

    I encountered exactly same situation last Sunday on Highway, I was driving back from my Home Town, Speed was around 90-100 I was trailing a Innova Who was cutting left and right like Two wheeler, It was around 8.30 PM , Highway with No Lights, Both Innova and Me are on right lane, I was around 10Ft Behind Innova, Innova guy spotted a Cow at the Middle of Road, I could not spot it as a Truck was slowly treading on Left Lane, , Instead of slowing down he moved to left lane Immediately, Since I was not racing him , I just maintained Right lane only to witness a Horror! a Cow Standing around 10ft away from me when I was doing 90-100 speed. In a split second I had two choices

    1. Brake hard
    2. Steer as much right as possible so as Not to hit the Right most divider but hit the cow from left so that I can pass the cow with a Dent to my car on the left, The cow may die depending on the impact

    I chose the later decision because my wife was next to me with our 11 months old kid. She was wearing Seatbelt , But there was not support to mykid other than she holding him, I thought If I brake Hard His Head may hit the Dashboard, I dragged to As much Right side I can, I was so fortunate that only the Left ORVM Hit the Mirror, In a Split Second I see Left ORVM ripped off, I saw the Cow, It was still moving Slowly in its direction, after which I never dared to stop thinking that , I just left, After about two or three Kilometers of Driving I slowed down Inquired Swift whom I overtook just before the accident, I asked him If he saw any cow stranded on road or if it was bleeding, He said He did not notice any such thing nor a Broken Mirror on Road, I still don't know what had happened to cow, Mirror Glass and Mirror Cap,

    I went to KHT to get it repaired, The Mirror Motor Assembly is intact, The SA said Whole Mirror assembly needs to be replaced as the Mirror Cap lock is Cut, It costs around 2700 including painting, I just asked him to replace the Broken Mirror Glass, I am still driving without Mirror Cap

    Lesson Learnt : Always maintain safe Distance from the Vehicle Behind
    Never Follow a Speeding Vehicle because he is making necessary space for you to move ahead, Even If Punto has Best of Brakes in its segment.

    I will post the Pic of Broken Mirror Cap, Thanks for such a wonderful Thread, I was lucky enough not get hurt on that, It still scares me If I think about it.

    Nice to see that every one is safe. You made the right choice. Nice thinking.
    You might have lost 2700/- but, that is nothing compared to what you have saved.

    Dude,

    You were seriously lucky I must say and quick thinking on your part. Just thinking of the effect the impact would have had if you had hit the cow makes me shudder. Good to know that you learned your lesson and importantly shared it on the forum. One more lesson I would request you to bear in mind is buy a good quality child seat for the rear and dont leave it to your front co passenger to handle in such situations.
