PLATTSBURG, Ohio — Call it hamburger helper after a Norfolk Southern freight train plowed into a herd of cattle on the tracks here near Columbus, killing some 20 of the Black Angus cows, reports the Associated Press.
The Associated Press quoted a NS engineer that his train of 122 freight cars and two locomotives, traveling 38 mph, could not stop in time.
No, the freight cars were not carrying ketchup.
It was not reported how the cows got loose from a nearby ranch and wandered onto the NS right-of-way.
