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.
