A driver has escaped injuries after hitting a cow on Oropi Road this morning. 

A police media spokesperson says police were alerted to an accident at 8.37am involving a car hitting a cow on Oropi Road, about 200m south of Wood Road. 

“There was some debris on the road but the vehicle involved is on the side of the road and awaiting a tow. 

“It looks as though ambulance were advised but more as a precaution - the driver of the car did not appear badly injured.” 

Police say there is no word on the status of the cow.

The driver of the vehicle says he would like to thank everyone who stopped and helped. He says he is one very lucky man.

Should be allowed to keep the cow... same thing happened years ago in Pyes Pa... cow was shooed off someones lawn, leaped off the bank and onto a car... the officer bought a gun to shoot the cow and missed...only 1 bullet... poor cow, what a fiasco...

OMG!!

Is SH2, between Katikati and Tauranga, a dangerous stretch of road?

Yes, there are too many cars on it and it’s not designed to handle that sort of traffic volume.
No, people just need to slow down and pay attention to their driving.
