Around 2 a.m. on Monday, officers with the Tulsa Police Department were called to an area near E. 46th St. North and Lewis following a report of a cow in the road.

While the officers were searching for the cow, a speeding driver hit one of the patrol cars from behind. According to FOX 23, the impact sent both cars off of the road.
