Coyote Hit By Car Gets Stuck In Fender – Authorities Believe This Was No Accident

On a road trip from Colorado to California in 2009, brother and sister Daniel and Tevyn East were driving at night along Interstate 80 near the Nevada-Utah border when they noticed a pack of coyotes near the roadside. When one of the animals ran, or was possibly pushed in front of the car, the impact sounded fatal so the siblings thought there was no point in stopping.

Eight hours, two fuel stops, and 600 miles later they found the wild animal embedded in their front fender – and very much alive.

Only a few weeks after the animal’s escape, it was reported that the same coyote was seen wearing a pair of ACME jet skates as he was chasing the bird before smashing into a fake train tunnel painted on the side of a large rock.
