Cows on the road cause $3,500 damage to a car


August 28th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

An accident this morning in Montgomery County involving a vehicle and a herd of cattle caused about $3,500 damage, but no one was injured. The Sheriff’s Office said at around 5-a.m.,  William Lalone, of rural Stanton, was traveling north on N Avenue, north of 230th Street, when he came upon about 15 black cows standing on the road. While attempting to avoid the animals, the 2012 Mazda 2 Lalone was driving came into contact with one of the cows, possibly injuring the animal.

The cattle which were on the road fled to the north and east, possibly into a nearby cornfield. The owner of the cows, Richard Kennon, arrived and checked his nearby field, but was unable to determine how many of the animals had strayed from the field, due to the presence of fog in the area, along with the dark conditions.

No citations were issued.
