A cow came flying out of its trailer, sent DPS and police scrambling, and left two police cars going up in flames.
Watson told News 4 WOAI, "We believe the gate of the cattle trailer came open, and the cow, for lack of a better phrase spilled out onto the Interstate. It was pretty chaotic for a while."
Several cars hit some of the cows. One cow died. DPS troopers called for backup. That's when one officer was nearly run down by a speeding truck, carrying two illegal immigrants inside.
Seguin Police were out looking for those illegal immigrants. They parked their cars in the hot grass, burning two of them including that brand new 2006 Crown Victoria. Everything inside was destroyed, including tens of thousands of dollars worth of equipment designed for the patrol cars.
"You start off with kind of a bizarre accident with these cows spilling onto the interstate. That leads to other accidents, that leads to a car chase, that leads to a foot chase," Watson recalls.
