Default Truck hits GIANT hog

Wow what a huge pig.

This is the aftermath of a truck vs wild hog crash that occurred yesterday in Cowlington on US59 in Leflore County. Thankfully the driver only received non-life threatening injuries, although the wild hog perished. The truck was totaled after striking the nearly 7 foot long wild hog that was in the middle of the roadway.

Always be cautious while driving and be prepared for anything!

Really? Need to see weight scales and more pics, but that looks like a big *** hog and even smaller ones can do a tremendous amount of damage to vehicles!

They blurred the hogs face to protect its identity, until notification of next of kin! That, or it was a minor hog, an under 18 years of age.

6 or 7 years ago on 59 south of Victoria a Toyota Chambray hit a 300 pounder. the left front tire, hub, tie rods, cv joints was ripped and stuck under the right rear passenger seat. with the short legs, its just like hitting a 2 foot brick wall.

I hit a hog in Montgomery County one time and called the Sheriff's Office to let them know there was a 200-pound hog in the middle of the road. They wanted my name number and address and I would not give it to them. Just told the dispatcher where the hog was and left. Two weeks later I got a bill in my mailbox for animal carcass removal fee.
$189!!!!!!!

I couldn't believe it. I never gave them any info.

It doesn't look like a feral hog to most because 99% of folks never see a wild hog that big.. That's what a BIG wild hog looks like..
It's what makes them BIG..

4 years ago I got a new shift partner that was not from the area. He bought a motorcycle to ride to work. I told him he was crazy because the route he drove was infested with hogs and many a vehicle had been tore up on that stretch of highway from hitting wild pigs. He would respond with some smart arse comment.
About a month later we left our graveyard shift and he hit one while he was going 70. Broke his neck and busted up some other parts but he survived.. Youngsters,SMH... I tried to tell him...

As some others have said, it doesn’t look like a wild hog and I think that is why you don’t see his head in the picture. What the head looks like tells all. It doesn’t really matter if it was wild or not it’s going to do the same damage. Glad the driver is going to recover.
