CAR VERSUS COW!!!!!

This happened in July... This is a ford focus ST (sport tuned)... it was pretty nice... 2.3L... I will sum up the events with an email I sent to a friend... this is just after the accident... my wife did end up in physical therapy... still is.

My sister had an ectopic pregnancy and when they gave her the chemo chemical shot they use, her fallopian tube ruptured and her husband had to rush her to the hospital... they fixed her up and my wife and I decided to drive down and visit and help her out for a couple days. We had a nice drive down, planning to visit and come back today, but my wife's doc called on the trip down and said they had a cancellation and she should come early... so we only got to stay one night and left about 7:30 last night after fixing my sister dinner, going to the aquarium, etc... we were on pace to get home about 1:30am, but when we got on highway 64 about 10 miles from home, some ****ed up **** happened... I thought I saw movement and then eyeshine... was it a man? or a sasquatch...??? no... a dog?? ****.. THAT'S A HUGE ****ING DOG!!!... NO-----.... it's a ****ING COW!!!!!!!!!! A damn black angus about 2 years old or so... standing in the road and deciding to bolt in the same direction I begin to steer the car... I'm obviously laid into the brakes, but it's too late... the focus lights just weren't up to the challenge (of giving us enough forewarning) and we slammed into the cow... it crushed the radiator and front end, smashed the hood from bumper to windshield, which was then nearly shattered (only the blind luck that I swerved enough so that the cow also hit and bent the pillar preventing it from, in all probability, slamming dead center in the windshield and visiting us in the cabin.....) he then rolled over the car at least partially, as his hoofs scuffed the top of the car on both sides, and proceeded to roll off the road to the left into a slightly recessed field... my wife heard a leg snap when he tried to get up, and his back was probably also broken...

Back in the cabin...

both airbags deployed and in the cabin filled with the propellant and antifreeze vapor (looked like smoke)... my wife saw the cow's back slam into the windshield directly in front of her, and screamed... I forgot to get on the clutch, so I guess I stalled 'er in 5th, lol... when we stopped I was still stunned, but roused myself nearly immediately and looked at my wife, and for the cell phone, which I could not find; I told my wife to bail... her door was stuck, but I was already halfway around the car going to rip it open... When my wife was out we moved away and flagged down a driver... turned out to be a nice girl that stayed with my wife through the whole ordeal. a kid in a subarau helped me back it off the road after we called the highway patrol... then called my dad to come get us...... (skipping some) My wife has no broken bones, but she's pretty ****ing sore and it took a toll on me too. My left wrist got kinda ****ed up, but I think it's okay... might go to the chiropractor on monday for my wrist and whiplash (I did). The cow actually **** all over the passenger side mirror on impact, and he could not stand... seemed to be hurting pretty bad (trooper shot him twice)... just glad the focus held it's own... wish they had put better headlights on them.

now for pics:

short ram my wife and I built for price of the filter... focus had "lifetime" filter... boo..


good times before the wreck...






notice the cow ****...




hoof prints on top...


hello airbags...


engine was pushed back 3+ inches (he stopped measuring)... intake mani cracked...


----------------------------------------------

new whip teaser... 6th Gen. Prelude!!!

Re: CAR VERSUS COW!!!!!

Re: CAR VERSUS COW!!!!!

As karma would have it, "did you eat steak that night?" cow might have been up for some revenge. Glad I live in NYC, where cows only do Drivebys, not standbys.

Glad you guys are ok.

We live in rural NC....calling it a street is a stretch! It's more of a desolate stretch of highway! We've come upon cows in the road before (not on this highway though), but this one was black, and it was the middle of the night. The road we were on is also a state highway where the speed limit is 55...

Re: CAR VERSUS COW!!!!!

Thanks guys... lol to the acceleration idea... and the cow ****ting on the ford... We actually had chicken that night, so maybe it was something else sideswipe, lol.

The trooper did shoot the cow, and my wife did think she was going to avoid beef for a while after this, but that didn't last long, lol... had steak the following weekend... not from the cow though (I bet the farmer did...)...

We are thankful it wasn't worse... could have been much much worse... The cow was not too big as cows go... probably a good thing... seen many... hit 1... that's all it takes.

Re: CAR VERSUS COW!!!!!

I've never seen a cow try to run that fast... he tried to run out of the way, but everything happened so quickly, there was nothing we could do.... :(

Re: CAR VERSUS COW!!!!!

I think he may have been thinking (to the tune of Cee Lo Green's song...) "I see you drivin' down the ol' country road, and I'm like... f*ck me, and f*ck you too!"
