I hit a deer once (fortunately I'd slowed down because another deer had already crossed the road), and I can tell you, that freaked me out plenty! Even though the stupid thing committed suicide in front of my car by jumping out of the bushes at me, I felt bad about it, since it was a mammal and not a bug or something. So I can imagine the gut reaction of seeing a human shape bouncing off the hood of your car.
Her reaction was 100% natural. I've seen people practically flip the car to miss a possom which is a god awfully ugly creature and a general menace.
What doesn't make sense however is why she took off in the car. The group has faced more dangerous situations than the sick woman who wasn't even facing imminent danger.
