ORINDA — Two cars crashed Monday afternoon on Highway 24 after a cow reportedly wandered onto the highway, the California Highway Patrol said.
Initial reports confirmed by the CHP indicated a silver Mercedes and a black Honda were involved in the crash around 12:20 p.m. in the eastbound direction just west of the Camino Pablo exit. The CHP reported that a cow ran across lanes, and that the two cars crashed trying to avoid it.
There were no injuries, according to the CHP.
It’s not the first time this year that livestock and traffic have mixed with bad results on a Bay Area highway. Three people were hospitalized and a hornless bull died March 27 after a six-vehicle crash on eastbound Highway 4 just past the McEwen Road exit.
That crash happened just days after two horses wandered away from their paddock in Alamo and walked onto northbound Interstate 680. Neither was hit by a car and Contra Costa Animal Control removed them.
