MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota State Patrol says a Kanabec County Sheriff’s deputy needed hospitalization after a cow ran into the roadway and collided with the deputy’s squad car.

According to the state patrol, the incident occurred Monday evening in Arthur Township, Minnesota. There, a deputy was searching for a reported cow on the roadway. As the deputy made a second pass through the area, the cow ran out of the ditch and collided with the squad car.

The deputy, identified as 30-year-old Daniel Steven Schulz of Mora, was taken to First Light Hospital in Mora with non-life threatening injuries.

  1. Greg Laden says:

    Too bad he couldn’t steer away from the cow faster.
