A Mooreland man was injured when the semi he was driving collided with a cow. The collision occurred at 5:20 a.m. Wednesday on U.S. Highway 60, 4.1 miles east of Chester in Major County.

The semi came to rest in the south ditch.
McIntosh, who was wearing a seat belt, was transported by Fairview EMS to the Seiling Hospital where he was admitted in stable condition with head, trunk internal, trunk external, arms and leg injuries.
