Moo-chanism of injury

Sorry. I couldn't help it. From the Boston Globe:

Woman finds a cow in the back seat
February 2, 2008 01:01 AM

By Caitlin Castello, Globe Correspondent

A woman who was driving down a Rehoboth road found an unfamiliar passenger in her back seat after an accident Tuesday night -- a cow.

Tanya Coccia, 46, of Seekonk was driving on Providence Street when she hit two cows. After rolling over the hood and roof of the car, one of the cows fell through the back windshield into her back seat.

"It is shocking and really weird," said Coccia, who was returning home with her daughter, Haley, 14, after running errands at about 10 p.m.. "Who would have ever thought I'd end up with a cow in the back seat of my car?"

The cow that fell into the back seat survived; the other cow had to be euthanized, she said.

It is a good thing her daughter was 14 years old. If she was less than 12 she would've been in the back seat...and killed.

There's no check box on the run report for stuff like this...
