    Flying Cow Leaves Two Police Cars in Flames

    Flying Cow Leaves Two Police Cars in Flames

    Talk about a wild night near Seguin. A cow came flying out of its trailer, sent DPS and police scrambling, and left two police cars going up in flames.

    "It was almost hard to believe," said Detective Sergeant Maureen Watson. She has been in law enforcement for 15 years, and says she "never had a day like this. I mean the best way to characterize this it, is it's bizarre. It's really really strange."

    It's strange because it started out with a truck towing cattle, and ended in fire.

    Watson told News 4 WOAI, "We believe the gate of the cattle trailer came open, and the cow, for lack of a better phrase spilled out onto the Interstate. It was pretty chaotic for a while."

    Several cars hit some of the cows. One cow died. DPS troopers called for backup.

    That's when one officer was nearly run down by a speeding truck, carrying two illegal immigrants inside.

    Seguin Police were out looking for those illegal immigrants. They parked their cars in the hot grass, burning two of them including that brand new 2006 Crown Victoria. Watson said, "Well, all of a sudden, another officer who'd arrived on the scene, alerted the sergeant that there was a fire."

    Everything inside was destroyed, including tens of thousands of dollars worth of equipment designed for the patrol cars.

    "You start off with kind of a bizarre accident with these cows spilling onto the interstate. That leads to other accidents, that leads to a car chase, that leads to a foot chase," Watson recalls.

    The two mexican immigrants, ages 21 and 23, are in custody for illegally entering the country and evading arrest. Watson says they have replacement cars for now, but hope the city council will vote to get new cars soon.

    You kind of have to wonder at the odds of all that happening.
