A woman driver accidentally hit an owl. At least she thought so. The woman believed that she had killed the owl.
It turned out that not only did she not kill the owl but the bird was alive and decided to hang along for a ride.
The bizarre incident in Florida only came to light when passers-by asked Sonji Coney Williams, the woman driver, to open the hood of her car. Why? Because two yellow eyes were lit up and staring out of the grill.
The owl had been trapped there for 24 hours. Sonji burst into tears of joy when she saw that the owl was alive! The animal was later released and transferred to a wildlife protection center.
