A Denver motorist suffered only a scratch when a goose smashed through her windshield.

Shannon Jergenson was driving about 50 mph when “the bird came up and went bam, right into my windshield,” she said. “I turned my head and when I opened my eyes, the bird’s head kind of fell over.”

She was able to pull over to the side of the highway. No drivers were directly behind her at the time of the collision.

The hairstylist still managed to arrive at work, albeit a few hours late.

“I’m still shaken up by it,” she said. “I have to talk myself into starting my car now.”
