CODY, Wyo. - Retired college basketball coach Bob Knight escaped injury when his vehicle struck a cow on a dark northern Wyoming highway.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol says the accident occurred about 8:45 p.m. on Aug. 22 on a remote section of state road known as the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway.
Trooper Brad McConnell says the impact caused the air bag on the 2012 Ford Expedition to deploy and severely damaged the front end. The vehicle was totaled.
Knight told McConnell that he never saw the cow, which was among several that wandered onto the roadway in an open range area.
Knight was traveling alone after a fishing trip in the Thermopolis area of central Wyoming.
Knight won 902 games and three national titles during his coaching career, mostly at Indiana.
