LIVERMORE FALLS — A cow was injured early Thursday when a driver collided with the animal as it roamed loose on a central Maine road, according to the local police chief.

The crash was reported at 3:22 a.m on Fayette Road, also known as state Route 17, Livermore Falls police Chief Mike Adcock said.

Jeremy Doiron, 42, of Jay was driving his 2014 Ford Escape when he collided with the cow, which was in the road.

Doiron was not believed to be injured, Adcock said, but his SUV was significantly damaged from the impact of the crash and had to be towed from the scene.

The cow, owned by Jean Castonguay, who has a farm on Fayette Road, had gotten loose and wandered onto the road, Adcock said.
