A MOUNT Gambier man and his close friend are just "happy to be alive" after being involved in a serious crash when a bull walked out in front of the car they were travelling in.
At around 6.20pm on Sunday evening, 19-year-old Aden Pfitzner was driving his blue Holden Commodore along Riddoch Highway just north of Allendale East.
"I had just entered the 110kph zone on the Mount Gambier side of Allendale when a passing car flashed their headlights at my vehicle," Mr Pfiztner said.
"My first thought was that my high beams must have been on, so I was checking that and within 10 seconds or less I crashed into the bull in the middle of the road."
