Sheriff’s deputies say an 18-wheeler and two pick-up trucks hit and killed 17 cows when the herd of cattle got loose from a pasture and wandered onto La. Highway 30 in St. Gabriel, reports the AP.
Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office Maj. Johnny Blanchard tells The Advocate the accident caused the 18-wheeler to overturn in a ditch after hitting the cows. The accident occurred around 2 a.m. Thursday. The driver of the 18-wheeler was taken to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries.
