Driver swerves to avoid kangaroo hopping into oncoming traffic in Australia

A hapless kangaroo dodged an oncoming car as it hopped the wrong way along a road in Australia.

Driver Linnie Walker said she was shocked when the animal suddenly appeared in front of her car in Adelaide on December 24.

She managed to swerve out of the way and avoid clattering into the animal.

Linnie said: ‘The roo looked like he was lost and went to the highway not knowing which how to return to the woods. I am relieved that I missed him.’
