Movement could be heard in the car when the cows were suddenly visible, but by then it was too late for the man to avoid hitting them.

The car made impact with multiple cows.

The man could be heard shouting in shock and exclaiming "Allahu Akbar!".

The video ended shortly after the car came to a stop.

Slow down and use high beam

Commenters weighed in on the footage.

Multiple users said that the driver should have slowed down.

Although he had his headlights on, he could also have used his high beam headlights to check the road for obstacles further ahead.
