Woman Texting & Driving Nails Cattle. Her Name? Daisy Cowit.
We all know that texting and driving can be dangerous. When you’re looking at your cell phone for even a few seconds while behind the wheel a host of things can enter your path…like 50 cows.
A woman from Mount Hope, N.Y., unfortunately named Daisy Cowit, ran into the cattle after checking her phone for an incoming call. She denies sending any messages at the time of the accident.
The farmer, Mike Hosking, who could lose three of his dairy cattle due to injuries, told the Times Herald-Record, “If you don’t see 50 cows in the road, you’re doing something (you shouldn’t be doing).”
Adding insult to injury, Hosking said someone who came to pick up Cowit — whose car was totaled by the impact — didn’t understand why so much fuss was being made over a few injured cows.
No criminal charges were filed against Cowit, but authorities said the investigation remains open.
