Four cows were killed and three injured this weekend after being hit by one pickup near Manvel, ND.

The accident happened on County Road 33 early Saturday morning when 7 cows lost their way.

A driver hit the cows, killing four of them and injuring the others. Some of the injured had to then be put down by deputies.

It caused $5600 in damage.

"This is a good reminder to people that have cattle, that they need to check their fence lines and make sure that they keep their cattle in. Because it is serious and it can cause serious bodily injury," Major Bob Rost with the Grand Forks County Sheriff's Department said.

The driver was not hurt.

The farmer is charged with having his livestock running at large.
