That is a weird story.
So a kangaroo ran into the road, was hit by car, ricocheted off of it and hit a jogger?
I'd call bullshit but it is Australia, where the relationship between humans and wildlife is --at best-- strange.

It also happened in Kangaroo Flat. And I'm just gonna guess it's called that for a reason. Some towns have a LOT of Kangaroos.

Kangaroo and a pig photographed having sex in the Northern Territory by Sydney PhD student
I'm pretty sure most other countries have made this illegal.

Also, that lazy title pun

Awesome, that driver must've scored like 30 points for that trick shot. Top shit mate.

If Kangaroo Flat has a highway going through it, it's probably named for all the flat kangaroos.
