Texas truck crash spills hogs out on the highway

Pigs on the loose after semi crash on Texas interstate

Pigs on the loose after semi crash on Texas interstate

Authorities in Texas were forced to play a real-life version of Pass the Pigs Thursday, June 29 when a semitrailer carrying dozens of the farm animals overturned and closed Interstate 45.

When the truck tipped onto its side, the pigs came tumbling out and ended up running all over the freeway.

The driver was not hurt and it is unclear if any hogs were injured at this time.

Some went as far as three or four miles away from the scene of the crash before being ushered back by police.

Law enforcement officials closed the roadway in both directions as they spent the next several hours rounding up herds of pigs.

The crash involved two 18-wheelers and a auto.

It is not known if any of the pigs were injured in the crash.

All lanes of Interstate 45 have been shut down because of the crash. "We do not know how many dead-loss or how many ran off", Wilmer Police Department Lt. Eric Pon told KTVT.
