An Argentine rally driver evades injury after ramming straight into a herd of horses that had wandered on to the track, sending one of them flying into the air.

National champion rally driver Federico Villagra and his navigator Diego Curletto were competing in the second leg of the Argentine Championship(Campeonato Argentino in Spanish) rally tournament in Rio Negro (August 17), when they came over a small hill and were surprised by a herd of horses crossing over the track.

Unable to avoid the animals, driving at such great speeds in the rally vehicle, Villagra struck one of the horses, sending it flying into the air.

Neither Villagra or Curletto were hurt. The animal survived but was severely injured.
