GOLDEN VALLEY - A motorist escaped serious injury Saturday evening after he struck and killed two cows on Highway 68 near Teddy Roosevelt Road.
The cows were part of a herd of about 10 on the highway, according to a witness.
According to the Golden Valley Fire Department, the man was driving west in the right-hand lane when he struck the cows. At least one of them struck the windshield and rolled over the top of the car, partially crushing the roof.
The driver sustained a minor injury. Fire department personnel said the car was destroyed.
In another Highway 68 incident, two vehicles collided at about 2:30 p.m. Sunday. The impact was serious enough to require firefighters to use the Jaws of Life to free a woman.
According to the Golden Valley Fire Department, the driver of a westbound Dodge pickup truck crashed into the side of a 1985 Chevrolet El Camino. Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to free a 53-year-old woman trapped inside the El Camino.
She and the 83-year-old driver were transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
The three occupants of the pickup, a 36-year-old female driver and her 35-year-old and 2-year-old passengers, were unharmed. According to the Golden Valley Fire Department, they were buckled in.
