A recent incident in the Kruger National Park, South Africa has made headlines due to a rather unusual way an impala escaped from two cheetahs on it’s heels.

Watch the incredible footage of the impala making the most of its options by leaping into a Toyota 4×4’s side window!

The cheetah luckily didn’t decide to follow its prey…now that would’ve changed the situation dramatically!
