Madison Police said a woman was reading a text message when her vehicle swerved into a cattle trailer and killed a prize-winning cow that had just left World Dairy Expo.

The 26-year-old woman was cited for inattentive driving after the crash, which occurred late Saturday night on Madison's Beltline freeway.

It's illegal in Wisconsin to read or send text messages behind the wheel.
