SUV almost hits elephant
'You hit a what?' SUV nearly slams into elephant - Yahoo! News
OKLAHOMA CITY – It's not unusual to see a deer or a cow crossing Oklahoma's rural highways. But an elephant? A couple driving home from church nearly slammed into a giant pachyderm that had escaped from a nearby circus late Wednesday.
"Didn't have time to hit the brakes. The elephant blended in with the road," driver Bill Carpenter said Thursday. "At the very last second I said 'elephant!'"
Carpenter, 68, said he swerved his SUV at the last second and ended up sideswiping the 29-year-old female elephant on U.S. 81 in Enid, about 80 miles north of Oklahoma City.

Carpenter joked about being involved in such a bizarre accident on what is usually a peaceful church night.
"I don't know what was in the wine, but it must have been pretty strong," he said
Therrrrrreeee ya have it! lol
How would ya like to be the responding Officer handling that crash? I'm pretty sure there is no applicable box on our OH-1's that would begin to cover it. Maybe just "animal""Like" us on facebook! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Offic...93147194083228

maybe the guy needs his eyes checked and needs to lay off the sauce. Its not like an elephant is this teeny tiny animal that can just jump out in front of you'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
