    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.

    Wait just a minute!!! The elephant blended in with the road?

    You sure the guy was returning from church and not a church social?

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    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"

    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
