Kentucky Department of Highways Public Information Officer Keith Todd reported that wind downed a large oak tree allowing six cows to flee their pasture and enter the roadway. Department of Transportation workers joined Trigg County Sheriff Randy Clark in efforts to corral the escaped bovines.
The incident happened after Friday morning’s storm, with Todd’s first media advisory alerting motorists to slow down coming shortly after 1 p.m. The cows escaped near the 60-mile marker.
