Woman Killed In Car And Cow Collision

A woman was killed in a bizarre accident involving a cow.

Sarah Elizabeth Hopkins was a passenger in a vehicle that struck a cow Wednesday on Highway 287.  When the vehicle came to a stop, Hopkins stepped outside the vehicle, near the left shoulder. At that point, a second vehicle came in contact with the same cow, losing control of his Ford Expedition, and striking Hopkins.

The 21 year-old victim was sent to the Quanah Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 2:30 a.m.

There have been no charges at this point.
