This is the damage a driver sustained to his truck when he slammed into a cow on a dark night on Estrella Road in Golden Valley. After hitting the cow, the driver took off without reporting the accident, but was later cited for hit and run, leaving the scene of an accident and his insurance company ended up paying the rancher for the dead cow. Vehicle drivers need to be very aware of the sides of the roads where cattle often congregate looking for food.
