VIENNA -- A mass collision between a flock of starlings and a car on a stretch of Austrian expressway has left up to 100 of the birds dead and the driver shaken but unhurt.

The Austria Press Agency says the birds suddenly flew from power lines above the multi-lane highway in western Austria downward and directly into the path of the car.

The report did not say how fast the car was traveling Monday, but the speed limit on Austria's autobahns is usually 130 kph -- close to 80 mph.

The car sustained numerous dents. Cleanup crews quickly removed the dead birds.
