Cow on highway causes early morning crash
A MAN was lucky to escape with only minor injuries this morning when the car he was driving hit a cow on the Mary Valley Highway at 5.45am.
The cow died on impact and was being removed from the road by tractor.
The driver, in his 40s, suffered bruising but was fortunate to sustain no fractures and transported himself to the Gympie Hospital, Gympie Ambulance officer in charge Wayne Sachs said.
A Gympie police spokesman said the car was written off.
