Train kills 20 cows

A herd of cows wandered onto a railroad line at the wrong time Tuesday, and it did not end well.

A 6,700-foot Norfolk Southern train plowed through the herd in the darkness about 6 a.m., a statement from the Clark County, Ohio, sheriff's office said.

The train, which was traveling at 38 mph, killed 20 cows, the sheriff's office said. The value of the animals was not known, and the owner was not named.

The accident, which happened about 40 miles west of Columbus, disabled the train's lead locomotive and blocked a rural highway for three hours, the statement said. No humans were injured.

    To all it was a freight train so there was only an engineer and conductor aboard.

    But look on the bright side, at least the story is not about that idiot half governor from Alaska. 🙂

      I'd hate to be the one to clean this up. The good news is it didn't happen in the middle of summer and 95 degrees!
