    Thats what i thought especially for it to have enough energy to be fatal.

    Its more likely the investigation will prove the shooter took an unsafe shot, missed, and thought up some cock and bull story to try and get off the hook.Hes up chit creek.

    That is one very unlucky driver! Imagine trying to replicate it experimentally; one for mythbusters me thinks!

    Would a bullet be able to strike a boar, ricochet 1 mile, hit a car, go through the windscreen, hit someone and kill them???? I'm with Bumble on this one.

    It seems rather far fetched to me - unless of course wild boar in that part of France have skin made of bullet proof trampolines!

    What do you bet the boar "ran off and couldn't be found"?

    I call BS.

    Pretty unfortunate whatever the story though.

    My condolences to the widow, but that sounds like a "Ripple's Beleive it or not". I have shot many a boar, at 30 meters with an 8mm and .303, using 180 grain bullets, and have yet to have an exit wound . I agree, can you say BS?
