The police joked he'd caught lunch and the auto body repairman will be glad of the business, but a German driver was shaken up when a frozen pig's knuckle collided with his car on the high-speed autobahn.
The piece of frozen pork flew from a truck and damaged the unnamed man's car in the Ruhr region of western Germany before he could swerve to avoid it, German police said Thursday.
After pulling over, he found a frozen pork knuckle had penetrated the bumper of his car.
"We've seen many odd cases, but a flying pork knuckle is something new," a police spokesman in the town of Hagen said Thursday.
The car suffered 200 euros worth of damage, police estimated.
