Motorists continue to watch out for deer on rural Northeast Iowa roads around dusk and dawn, however one driver apparently did not suspect the animal in his way was a bit more domesticated.


Shortly after 9:30pm Monday (June 19), the Fayette County Sheriff got a report of a vehicle that had struck a cow on Highway 18, west of West Union.

A car driven by 60 year old Craig Waskow of Royse City, Texas, was westbound; he was unable to avoid colliding with a cow in the road.

No one was injured, but there was $3,500 damage to Waskow's 2017 Chrysler.

No word on who owned the cow.
