Race cars and wild animals – as this coyote discovered – do not mix. At a rally car race in Argentina on Monday, driver Federico Villagra struck a wild horse with his Mitsubishi Evo, sending the animal 30 feet up into the air. The horse was seriously injured and was later put down. The Los Andes newspaper – and this is how you know Argentina is serious about its racing – reports that the accident only cost Villagra 30 seconds.

Video posted after the jump. Warning: It is shocking.

Not me. I’m better than that.

Instead I will leave you with: Poor, poor Flicka.
