    Fort Worth had its own bull-running when a bull got loose twice this weekend.

    A bull that got loose over the weekend -- twice -- in southwest Fort Worth died after it crashed into a car, injuring the driver.

    The brown-and-white bull rammed a vehicle the first time it got loose, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. The bull was returned to its owner Saturday, said Sgt. S. Hawkins.

    But the animal was spotted again Sunday on Southwest Loop 820. It was spotted charging from Hemphill Street to at least McCart Avenue and then back to Hemphill, the newspaper reported.

    Hawkins said police kept after the bull, but it crashed into a small car shortly after midnight Monday and died.

    "He wasn't cooperating," she told the Star-Telegram. "He was pretty ornery."

    The owner was located, and a wrecker crew loaded the bull into the owner's truck.

    MedStar spokeswoman Lara Kohl said the driver was taken to a hospital. His condition was not known Monday.

    Police did not issue the bull's owner a citation, saying that it would be a civil court issue between the owner and the man who was injured.
