— While it's not uncommon to hit a deer or a bird on North Carolina roads, Rhesa Walston has a more interesting story to tell.

While she drove in Beaufort County last week, a catfish fell from the sky and shattered her windshield.

Walston posted the aftermath to Facebook, writing, "because really who would believe me if I didn't have the fish."

She told an eastern North Carolina television station that she saw a bird carrying the fish seconds before it dropped onto her car.
