The occupants of this truck, including a 2-year-old, were not injured Sunday in a wreck on Highway 68 in Golden Valley.

GOLDEN VALLEY - A motorist escaped serious injury Saturday evening after he struck and killed two cows on Highway 68 near Teddy Roosevelt Road.

The cows were part of a herd of about 10 on the highway, according to a witness.

According to the Golden Valley Fire Department, the man was driving west in the right-hand lane when he struck the cows. At least one of them struck the windshield and rolled over the top of the car, partially crushing the roof.

The driver sustained a minor injury. Fire department personnel said the car was destroyed.

In another Highway 68 incident, two vehicles collided at about 2:30 p.m. Sunday. The impact was serious enough to require firefighters to use the Jaws of Life to free a woman.

According to the Golden Valley Fire Department, the driver of a westbound Dodge pickup truck crashed into the side of a 1985 Chevrolet El Camino. Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to free a 53-year-old woman trapped inside the El Camino.

She and the 83-year-old driver were transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The three occupants of the pickup, a 36-year-old female driver and her 35-year-old and 2-year-old passengers, were unharmed. According to the Golden Valley Fire Department, they were buckled in.

GOOD GRIEF!! Two other motorist hit cows out there about two weeks ago. At this point I think whoever these cows belong to need to be held responsible for the damage that has been caused. Arizona may be open range but there is fencing out there for a reason. Its a highway. Cars are traveling at a high rate of speed. Is it going to take someone dying for this to be taken care of. I cant believe this happened again.

Who's the owner of these cows who should make certain they don't roam onto the roadways killing themselves and people.
