A bull being transported to a festival in Spain had other ideas: It escaped on a busy freeway and began ramming into cars. Miraculously, there were no injuries.

During festivities at a celebration in Iriépal in Guadalajara, the bull somehow got out of its cage and charged into oncoming traffic.

A video from one of the car's occupants captures the terrifying image of the animal running on the road and attacking cars as some people even climb on top of their stopped vehicles to escape the dangerous animal.

The bull was being taken to the town north of Madrid to help celebrate the feast of San Roque, according to the Daily Mail.

In another recent incident involving a bull, the outcome was much worse. A British man on vacation in Spain needed 150 stitches after being gored by a bull in the street, according to the Mirror.

The 41-year-old had been watching the "bulls in the street" festival with his family in Calpe, near Benidorm, when he was attacked.
