Van collides with cow
A van smashed into a cow on the Hauraki Plains this morning causing moderate injuries to two people.
The vehicle was travelling along Orchard West Rd when it slammed into the bovine and emergency services were called at about 6.10am.
St John Ambulance northern communications spokeswoman Ptrece Gosney-Payne couldn't say how many people were in the vehicle at the time but two were taken to Thames Hospital with moderate injuries.
The patients' genders and ages were unknown.
Ngatea Volunteer Fire Brigade also attended.
Northern fire service communications spokeswoman Megan Ruru said they conducted traffic control at the scene.
However, there was no mention of the cow from either service and it is presumed to have either been killed on impact or euthanased at the scene.
