Cow causes motorway pile-up!

An escaped cow caused a five-car pile-up when it strayed on to a motorway in West Lothian. The poor cow died from her injuries. In cases like this one wonders what goes through the heads of the drivers. First, it seems they have to get to point B regardless. Second, they have no notion of stopping. As the first vehicle dodged the lost cow, it collided with another car - starting the five-car crash.

As this was at half past eleven at night, a stopped car, with warning lights flashing should be enough to, at least, encourage other motorists to slow down and stop.

The end result is one dead cow, five bashed cars and a few injured motorists.

When will people think about what they do? Sgt David Gray, of Lothian and Borders Police, said, "The people had a pretty lucky escape. Unfortunately the animal did not." It's a matter of too many lucky escapes and not enough common sense!
