Four Salem, Mo., motorists went to hospitals tonight after a wreck that started with a pickup hitting a cow.
The wreck happened about 5:45 p.m. on Missouri 32 just west of Salem. After hitting the cow, the driver lost control, crossed the center line and crashed into another pickup head-on, according to a preliminary report from the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
The men in the first pickup, ages 33 and 64, suffered moderate injuries. They were wearing seat belts.
In the second pickup, a 43-year-old man suffered moderate injuries and a 10-year-old girl suffered minor injuries. They weren't buckled up, according to the patrol's report.
(The report didn't say what became of the cow...)
