Two people were injured Saturday night, Feb. 17, after their car hit a cow, that was standing in the road.
According to Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) reports, Regina Watkins, 52, of Greenville, was traveling west on Hwy. 90, just west of Greenville, around 8:25 p.m., when her 2016 Chevy Cruze hit a black cow that was traveling across Hwy. 90.
Watkins and her passenger, Erica Brown, 21, of Greenville, both received minor injuries and were transported to Madison County Memorial Hospital (MCMH).
According to witnesses and bystanders at the scene, these particular cows have been out on the highway every day, and multiple reports have been filed with the Madison County Sheriff’s Office. The owners of the cows live in South Florida and have been contacted multiple times in reference to this problem.
FHP Trooper Wesley Dixon was the crash investigator and was assisted on scene by the Madison County Sheriff’s Office and the Madison County EMS.
