UPDATE: Two injured after cows cause crash on I-380

Posted: Updated:
BLACK HAWK COUNTY (KWWL) - Two people were injured after their vehicles struck cattle on the interstate Tuesday morning.

Justin DeMarco of Georgia was transported to Covenant Medical Center in Waterloo with minor injuries after his car ran into a rolled-over semi trailer, according to the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office Tuesday afternoon.

The trailer had rolled after striking two cows in the southbound lanes of I-380, causing the trailer to cross the median. It then rolled and came to rest on its side in the northbound lanes, according to reports.

The driver of the semi, Michael O'Neal of North Liberty, received minor injuries and was treated at the scene, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Another semi driver, William Bruner of Illinois, also struck a cow in the southbound lanes, damaging his semi. He was able to safely stop his vehicle and was uninjured, according to reports.

The three cattle which had escaped their pasture near mile marker 64 were owned by Barry Milz of Gilbertville, according to the Sheriff's Office. Milz had not been charged as of Tuesday afternoon.

The crashes happened around 4:20 a.m., according to police.

The three cows did not survive.

The Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office was assisted by Evansdale Police, Evansdale Ambulance, Gilbertville First Responders and the Iowa Department of Transportation.
