A driver has escaped injuries after hitting a cow on Oropi Road, Tauranga, 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.
