A North Highlands woman learned firsthand the potential dangers of driving along ranchlands Sunday night, after a head-on collision with a cow sent her to the emergency room in serious condition.
The accident happened at 11:40 p.m. on Baseline Road just outside of Roseville. According to Dave Martinez of the California Highway Patrol, Page Hardee, 21, was driving eastbound in her 1998 Volkswagen Beetle when she smashed into the cow about a mile west of Watt Avenue.
“There was major front-end damage to her car, and she had major injuries herself,” Martinez said.
Hardee was rushed to Sutter Roseville Medical Center.
Witnesses on-scene said the cow had to be put down due to its injuries.
