Creature in a wood

This incident happened in Spring 2012 on a nice, sunny day at about [3:00] in the afternoon while I was in the car with my boyfriend and mother. I was 20 years old.

We were coming back from the grocery store, and the road we would most often take was in the country and had some sharp turns along it. As we pull off the busier Farm road onto this road, we get about half a mile down the road where the first sharp turn is located. At this point right before the curve, there is a large field located diagonally-right to our position in the street, and a property of about 2-3 acres directly in front of us. There is a home on this property pushed way back, with a smaller, brushy wood in the very front of their property closest to the road with many trees and thorny bushes.

As we begin to take this sharp curve to the left, I see out of the corner of my eye from my position in the front passenger’s seat that something black is coming up on us extremely fast. Before I have time to even look to see what it is, the black mass is to the right of us in the brushy wood. It seemingly slowed its pace down to the match the speed of the car, and no noise was emitted – even stranger was that it didn’t maneuver through the wooded area to avoid branches. It simply kept on in a straight line going about the speed of our vehicle, roughly 25-30 mph.
