UNION TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A cow was killed Thursday in Union Township when it was hit by a car.
Authorities said 58-year-old Edward Walsh was driving on Finleyville-Elrama Road when he noticed the cow standing in the road. Walsh told investigators he wasn’t able to stop in time to avoid striking the cow.
The collision caused severe front end damage to Walsh’s car, and the cow was killed as a result of the crash.
Officials said Walsh sustained a minor injury to his left arm.
The cow’s owner, 55-year-old George Powell, said the cow escaped from a fenced-in area and was on the road unbeknownst to him.
