NOWATA COUNTY, Oklahoma -

A Claremore man who swerved to miss a goat in the road ended up hitting three other goats, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Troopers say the injury collision took place just after 11 p.m. on County Road North-South 421, a few miles outside Nowata. The wreck was blamed on animals in the roadway, but troopers say the driver had been drinking.

Raymond Pennington was driving a Mazda pickup northbound on the county road when he swerved to miss the goat. His pickup hit three goats that were also in the roadway.

Pennington, 54, was ejected 6 feet from the pickup. His driving ability was impaired by drinking alcohol, according to an OHP collision report. He was not wearing a seatbelt.

Pennington was taken to a Tulsa hospital by Lifeflight. His condition is listed as fair.
