Car gets run over by a horse

We are in the 21st century, the third millennium. Most people believe that the technological level achieved at the moment would secure that no freak accidents will happen. We would all think that we have achieved a high level of civilization and that this would allow us to at least not be in danger by the forces of nature. Natural disasters like hurricanes and floods show us every year that unfortunately you can not completely control natural disaster. Still, we might think that unfortunate events like horse stampedes are things that happened hundreds of years ago and do not happen nowadays. Unfortunately, one very unlucky man felt directly the force of one horsepower. Leaving aside the joke, an Israeli driver experienced maybe the most shocking moment of his life. His car got effectively run over by a horse while he was driving somewhere in a northern Israeli highway . The extremely unfortunate even was filmed by a group of tourists that were filming the galloping horses near their car. They were quite shocked when they saw that one of the horses effectively ran into a poor mans car, going directly through the windshield. The horse, after destroying the windshield of the car and nearly killing the driver, leaped over it and ran away. The driver was very lucky to survive from such a devastating accident, managing to escape with only a couple of cuts from the broken glass.
