Man dies after crash with cow

A MOTORCYCLIST was killed after a collision with a cow near Monto on Thursday night.

Neither speed nor alcohol was a factor in the fatal crash which occurred just outside of Mulgidie.

Monto police Sergeant Werner Crous said the man was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

"This must serve as a reminder that you should avoid riding a motor bike at night, country roads can be particularly dangerous with the presence of wandering stock," Sgt Crous said.

Sgt Crous said the man was taken to Monto Hospital but was later pronounced dead.
