An Israeli horse took to the highway and trampled an oncoming car in an encounter captured on video by a group of tourists in northern Israel.

The tourists began filming when three horses came on the highway and began to canter alongside their car, but the scene took a bizarre turn when an oncoming car came on the scene.

The first two horses weaved out of the sedan's path, but the third took it head-on, smashing through its windshield with its hooves before leaping over it and continuing on its way.

The video captured the impact as well as the passengers hollering "Oh God" and "Whoa."

Israel's Channel 2 TV showed the video Tuesday and said the driver suffered minor cuts from smashed glass and the horse was lightly injured.
