It was nothing short of a shock especially to the occupant of the car when a cow crashed into her car. From the report reaching us, this tragic incident took place on the 26th of November, 2020 in Delta State, Nigeria.
While the only occupant of the car suffered just a bruise on her wrist, the cow died instantly on the spot
From the eyewitness’s report, this cow in question crashed into the car around Ogorode Road in Sapele at around 5:50 am, at the time the driver was driving to her church. Obviously, she wasn’t expecting her trip to church to be cut short by a wandering and impulsive cow around the area.

Fortunately, the lady who was the only person in the car was able to survive the unexpected crash with minor injury (bruise) on her wrist. It was a different story for the cow as it died instantly on the spot. As a result of this crash, her vehicle was wrecked beyond recognition.
