Very sad. Poor woman was trying to do the right thing by making sure the owl was okay...and then she get hit by a car.
FLORIDA — Hillsborough County officials say a woman was hit and killed by a car after getting out of her own car to check on an owl she had accidentally hit.

No charges have been filed yet against the driver, who has not been identified. The accident is still being investigated.
Meanwhile, animal control officers are checking on the condition of the owl.
