A couple driving a minivan on Highway 150 in Eastern Washington were hit by a cow that fell off of a 200-foot cliff. The cow was killed by the fall, but the couple in the van (visitors from Michigan) were not injured.
Reported in a Nov 5 article in the Wenatchee World newspaper, Seattle NBC affiliate KING-TV sent a reporter (photos & video). The newswire services then picked it up, and now the story is all over the media. Wenatchee World has a Nov 8 follow-up article with more details & pics of the accident, plus subsequent media attention. Jaime Adame, the original reporter, said "I've never had this much response to a story before."
