When a trooper arrived on the scene, the cat was lying on the side of the road with head and leg injuries. The drivers said the cat ran into the road, where it was hit by one car and thrown into the path of the second vehicle.

The trooper took the cat to a nearby animal hospital. Its owner was found via Facebook.

The cat's owner told the trooper that Harley is doing well and is expected to fully recover.
