Couple escapes injury when falling cow hits van

A Michigan couple is lucky to be alive after their minivan was hit by a falling 900 pound cow on Sunday.

Charles Everson, Jr. and his wife Linda were driving on Highway 150 about one mile east of Manson in Chelan County when a cow fell about 200 feet off a cliff and landed on the hood of their minivan.
"It was 'bam' - you just saw something come down and hit the hood," Everson said. He said he didn't see the animal until it hit and didn't realize what happened until after the impact.
The Eversons were examined at Lake Chelan Community Hospital and released.
The cow was euthanized at the scene.
Rena Albertson, the owner of the cow, said the animal was named Michelle and the family had raised her from a calf.
