A 2013 GMC Sierra driven by Christopher Dejiacomo, 53, Carlton, Ga., was in the passing lane and struck the bull. The GMC crossed the median and ended up in the eastbound lanes, according the KHP. Passenger Angela Dejiacomo, 51, also of Carlton, S.C., was transported to Goodland Regional with an injury.

A 2015 Ford F150 that was also in the passing lane then hit the bull, rolled and came to a stop on its driver’s side.

All were using safety restraints, according to the KHP.
