Troopers: Motorcyclist dies after hitting cow along Oklahoma highway

PONTOTOC COUNTY, Okla. – Authorities say a man has died after hitting a cow along an Oklahoma highway.

Around 1:40 a.m. on Wednesday, troopers were called to Hwy 19, about 10 miles west of Ada in Pontotoc County.

Officials say 38-year-old James E. Wilson was riding a 2018 Harley Davidson motorcycle along eastbound Hwy 19 when he struck an 800-pound cow.

According to the trooper’s report, the cow was black, meaning Wilson might not have seen it in the roadway.

Sadly, Wilson was pronounced dead at the scene.
