Pigs clog Texas highway

WILMER, Texas (NBC News) – Rush hour was “hog wild” just outside of Dallas, Texas Thursday morning.

Both sides of Interstate 45 in Wilmer were shut down after a tractor trailer carrying close to 200 pigs crashed onto it’s side.

Dozens of pigs escaped into traffic, which backed up for miles as police and all available city crews worked to round up the roaming swine.

“We had them stretched for about three or four miles down the highway,” said Wilmer Police Lt. Eric Pon.
