OSO — A Darrington man apparently lost control of his car on Highway 530 on Thursday after his steering wheel came loose.
His 1978 Buick plunged down an embankment and into a dairy barn, just missing several calves.
The crash happened around noon in the 19900 block of the highway, Washington State Patrol trooper Keith Leary said.
The driver, 59, had minor injuries and avoided hitting any of the animals, Leary said.
The car ended up crashing through a cinder-block wall into the barn, ensnared by electrical wires. Fire crews worked to safely help the man out.
The wreck avoided hitting the animals. “The baby cows are very cute,” Leary said.
