Thought this was and interesting physics problem

A driver ina gray 1972 Blazer traveling at a speed of 60 miles/hour sees a deer 100 meters away on the road. (assuming that the deer does not move in the meantime-maybe it stepped on some gum, cramped up, went deaf, or has a death wish : "I SHALL BE.........Venison Jerky) Calculate the minimum constant acceleration that is necessary for the Blazer to stop with out hitting that helpless little deer.

What are your formulas which include acceleration and position?
