This is the aftermath of a cow-llision when a car collided with livestock which had got loose from its field.
Durham Constabulary has warned motorists to take care after the car was wrecked in the smash involving a cow.
Officers from the force's road policing unit posted pictures on social media of a battered white Peugeot near Sedgefield but confirmed that no-one in the car was hurt.
A special constable working with the team said he followed the "culprit" animal for a mile before farmers helped him get it back into a field.
@DurhamRPU said on Twitter: "This is the terrifying result of a motorist hitting a cow on the Sedgefield back road at Great Stainton.
"Fortunately no-one was injured.
"Always wonder what's around the bend and can you stop in distance you can see."
The officer replied: "Even the cow somehow only got minor injuries, and was still able to run from me for a good mile until it was put in a field with the help of some farmers!"
