A STRAY cow has caused havoc on the Hume Highway, with five vehicles driving into the animal.
Three cars and two trucks hit the Hereford cow near the Broken River bridge at Benalla about 7.30pm on Monday.
Police are amazed no one was injured in the incident, with three cars towed from the scene and the undercarriage of one of the trucks damaged.
“One of the truck drivers couldn’t believe it,” Sergeant Jeffrey Kyne said.
“One of the cars hit the cow while travelling beside the truck, became airborne, landed squarely and the driver managed to bring it to a stop without any further incident.
“All the vehicles have clipped the cow and run over it.
“Everyone has been extremely lucky.”
Sgt Kyne said it was hard to see the animal at night, especially when high-beam lights were not in use.
A lack of feed in paddocks was causing animals to wander, he said.
“There is more feed available for animals and wildlife on the edge of the freeway than in paddocks,” Sgt Kyne said.
