A man driving in France met with a bizarre accident in which a cow fell on his car’s bonnet.

The incident happened when he was driving with his stepson through the Pyrenees mountains near Perthus on the border with Spain.

While the father-son duo had a narrow escape after the 500 kg animal crash landed on the car, the cow did not survive the impact.

The car which was badly damaged, was halted abruptly.

The animal had been walking along a cliff high above the road and lost its balance, ‘The Local’ reported.

“We were more scared than hurt,” the unhurt driver told France Bleu radio, adding that he was very affected by the death of the animal.
