Daniel East and his sister, Tevyn, were driving at night along Interstate 80 near the Nevada-Utah earlier this month, when their car slammed into a coyote that scurried in their path, reported Rex Features.
Believing there was no way the wild animal could survive the 75 mph collision, the pair kept driving for eight more hours to their destination, where they finally inspected the damage to their car.

They can survive huge rocks landing on them and also falling off of very high rock ledges. There’s video of them on ACME rocket skates just after.
Awwwwww. poor thing.
What kind of moron drives 8 more hours before checking things out?
What I never understood is why go through all of that torture just to catch a little skinny bird, I mean there can’t be too much meat on a Roadrunner.
I guess he should have bown the horn. Meep meep
That's what I was thinking.
Now wait a minute...they drove another 600 miles? in 8 hours? and never had to stop for any other reason???
must have camel bladders
Too bad he didn’t kill it. The world needs fewer coyotes and raccoons.
Well, the 600 mile walk home on a gimpy leg is gonna do him in.
Good Wyle E. Good boy.
I gotta agree, I can walk out my door and hear coyotes yipping and howling right now.
And I think I’ve seen more dead raccoons this year than ever.
>>What kind of moron drives 8 more hours before checking things out?
Indeed. I clipped a deer with my rear quarter-panel some years ago around the Mendocino-Humboldt line on 101 in California one night. I expected the worst, so I stopped immediately and got out with the Mag Light and the .357. Fortunately- Bambi was okay and sprinted off into the woods after the collision. You hit some creature it’s awful, but you take care of business if you have to. Stop and check. Better than having some creature suffering in your engine compartment. Or worse.
Were his passengers ok?
No stopping to gas up? What the hell, dual tank? 50 mpg?
Something stinks about this story
