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.
