Insurance claim won't be peanuts

November 06, 2009|Times Wire Reports

An Oklahoma couple driving home from church hit an animal -- a really big one.

An elephant that had escaped from a circus collided with the couple's SUV Wednesday night when it ran across a rural highway in Enid, about 70 miles north of Oklahoma City.

The couple weren't injured, but police say the elephant suffered a broken tusk and an injured leg. Authorities said the tusk tore a hole in the SUV's sheet metal.
