Car Crashes into Cow along Interstate 485 in Charlotte

undefinedThree cows got free of a nearby farm and wandered onto Interstate 485 outside of Charlotte where one of them was struck by a passing motorist. The cow was killed.

While automobile collisions with livestock are not uncommon in rural areas, it is especially dangerous in metropolitan areas with busy streets.

Under North Carolina law, the owner of livestock would be liable for damages caused by escaped livestock only if the owner was negligent by failing to properly contain the animal. Commonly this is shown by examining the condition of the fences, pens or other structures used to contain the animal. In addition, any evidence that the animal had escaped on prior occasions would be important to consider.
