A car crashes into a cow, killing a Pecatonica woman.

State police say 75-year-old Harvey Dillon was driving on Saunders Road around 8 p.m. Monday night when he hit a large black cow standing in the road.

The cow broke through the car's windshield and hit his wife, 79-year-old Marcella Dillon.

The man did not have a cell phone so he drove to Pecatonica's fire station for help.

Firefighters tried to treat the woman, but she died. Police are investigating where the cow escaped from.
