Seven cows were hit and killed by cars on Highway 16 in Sacramento County and several others were hurt, snarling traffic during the Monday morning commute. According to KCRA 3, there were no people hurt in the crash on what is known as Jackson Highway, near Sunrise Boulevard where the cows were first hit by a pickup truck.

Most of the surviving cows were eventually herded back in a nearby field off Jackson Highway. The highway is now open, but the accidents did force the closure of the road for about an hour.
