ABILENE, Kansas (AP) — A driver was unhurt but multiple head of cattle were killed or injured when a tractor-trailer transporting the animals crashed on Interstate 70 in east-central Kansas.
KSAL-AM reports the accident happened around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday near Abilene in Dickinson County.
The Kansas Highway Patrol says the semi was westbound when it rolled onto its side and landed in a ditch.
The truck was transporting 61 head of cattle. Four died and several others were injured. A veterinarian was among those who responded to the accident.
Portions of I-70 were closed while officials worked the scene and rounded up cattle on the road.
