GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Florida — If you’re lucky enough to see a bald eagle in the wild, let’s hope the majestic bird is soaring through the sky, and not directly at your car.

That’s exactly what happened to a driver in Green Cove Springs, Florida, on Saturday, according to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office.

Rescue crews responded to help out when an eagle slammed into a car, becoming lodged in its grill.

Thankfully, the bird was OK, and turned over to the B.E.A.K.S. Wildlife Sanctuary.
