An Oklahoma man who swerved to miss a goat in the road ended up hitting three other goats.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol Troopers say the collision took place just after 11pm on Saturday, a few miles outside Nowata. The wreck was blamed on animals in the road, but troopers say the driver had been drinking.
Raymond Pennington from Claremore was driving a Mazda pickup northbound on the county road when he swerved to miss the goat, but his pickup then hit three other goats that were also on the road.
Pennington, 54, was ejected 6 feet from the pickup. His driving ability was impaired by drinking alcohol, according to an OHP collision report. He was not wearing a seatbelt. Pennington was taken to a Tulsa hospital by helicopter. His condition is listed as fair.
