Cows killed, driver injured in crash near Harveys Lake


ROSS TWP. — Three cows were killed and a driver was injured in a crash early Friday.

The accident occurred at about 6 a.m. after the cows wandered away from a nearby farm and onto Mooretown Road.

WNEP reports that Mark Verbyla and his wife, Gail, were shocked when they saw their cattle lying on the road.

Four cows were actually struck by a pickup truck, but one suffered only some lacerations on its face and is expected to be OK. The other three cows died at the scene. The driver was taken to the hospital to be checked out.

“You don’t expect them to be dead on the road … so, yes, it was shocking,” Gail Verbyla told WNEP.

State police say the crash is under investigation.
