WINNIPEG, Man. — A Winnipeg-based trucking company has filed a lawsuit against three farmers saying their cattle caused a late night crash last September.

Al MacDonald filed the lawsuit, saying that his driver was injured and $26,000 in damage was done when the truck came upon a herd of cattle in the middle of the highway.

The driver was unable to avoid them, and hit four cows before flipping over while making a delivery for Mac’s Enterprises.

MacDonald claims the farmers were negligent in keeping their cattle on their land and is seeking an undisclosed amount of money.

The farmers have 20 days to files a statement of defence.
