WEYMOUTH (CBS) – You don’t see this too often.

A swan ran into a car Monday and the swan won.

It happened near Whitman’s Pond in Weymouth around 11 a.m.

The swan shortly after the collision.

Bill Tanguay, a Senior Rescue Technician at the Animal Rescue League of Boston, said he was called to the scene and when he arrived he saw a shattered windshield on the driver’s side of the vehicle.

“I assumed the swan was going to be on its last leg,” Tanguay told WBZ-TV.

Instead, the swan was a few feet away hissing at him and the police.

Tanguay put him in a carrier and brought him back to Boston.

The swan was fine. They cleaned it up and will now bring him to a wildlife rehabilitator.

So what happened?

Tanguay said it appears the swan was either landing or taking off from the pond when it ran into the car.

“It seemed to have just fallen right out of the sky,” he said.

The driver was not hurt.
