No one was injured Monday night when a car driving on School Road South in Murrysville struck a cow, county emergency dispatchers said.

That includes the cow.

“I believe the cow walked away,” said Murrysville Police Chief Tom Seefeld.

However, it is not the first time a motorist has come across cows loose on School Road South in the past few days.

“My husband was driving home from a friend’s house on Friday night, and when they pulled out of the plan, these cows were right there in the middle of the road,” said Heather Fulton of Murrysville. “When he showed me the picture, I didn’t believe it, I thought it was Photoshopped.”

Fulton posted a photo of the small herd on Facebook, but was not able to figure out where the cows had come from.

“There were about nine of them, my husband said, and then they sort of split up into different directions,” she said.

Westmoreland emergency dispatchers said Monday’s crash occurred shortly before 9 p.m. on the 5200 block of School Road South, near its intersection with Haymaker Farm Road.

Seefeld said police were still working to determine the cows’ owner.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
