A 50-year-old Idaho woman swears a car accident Wednesday night wasn't her fault; she was distracted by Bigfoot. The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports the woman was driving along US Highway 95 north of Potlatch around 11:30pm when she says she saw a Sasquatch chasing deer along the side of the road. She says the Sasquatch was 7 to 8 feet tall and "shaggy." She also described it as a "hairy beast," according to Pullman Radio. The woman tells authorities she glanced in the mirror to get a second look at the creature when one of the deer ran in front of her car. She kept driving her damaged vehicle to pick up her husband at work before reporting the incident at the sheriff's office after midnight. A deputy went with her to the scene of the crash but apparently saw no sign of Bigfoot. (More bigfoot stories.)
