DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) Police say a motorist was killed in a crash that started after multiple vehicles hit cattle that had wandered onto the highway near Daytona Beach.

The Florida Highway Patrol identified the dead man as 61-year-old Lawrence Allegro of Enterprise, Florida. Troopers say Allegro was driving Friday night on a highway west of Daytona Beach when his car was struck head-on by another vehicle who hit one of the cattle.

Allegro also struck one of the animals. A tractor-trailer then hit the third animal. The other two drivers were not seriously injured. Allegro died at a hospital.

Troopers say all three of the cattle were killed.
