They are among 14 that escaped from farm; police say 1 died on impact, and 1 hit by truck.
Cumru Township police Sgt. James Griffith experienced a first in his career when two cows died after falling onto Route 222 from the Old Lancaster Pike overpass near Gouglersville.
Griffith said one cow died on impact while the other was hit by a tractor-trailer about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.
The cows belonged to a herd of 14 that escaped from a farm on Beavens Road in Brecknock Township, he said.
They were first spotted near the Gouglersville Fire Company about 1 p.m. before making their way to the retaining wall at the Old Lancaster Pike overpass, Griffith said.
