Just before 5 this morning an eastbound pickup hit a cow a few miles west of Oakland on Highway 32 in Burt County. The driver told a witness that one of his passengers was injured.
A herd of cattle had apparently gotten out and were on the highway in the dark. Rescue units responded.
State Patrol issued the following message on Twitter:
“We often share the roads in Nebraska with animals. This morning, this driver struck a couple cows. Fortunately, this driver was wearing his seat belt.”
