Durban - Three cows were killed when four cars collided with them on the N2 north near Umgababa on Friday night, KwaZulu-Natal paramedics said.

“One of the cows was pregnant and gave birth after she was hit by one of the vehicles,” said Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha.

“Tragically the baby (calf) also died at the scene.”

No people were injured in the accident although one car overturned and rolled.
