GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. — Westbound Interstate 70 was closed one mile past Glenwood Springs for an unusual crash, the Colorado Department of Transportation said Monday.
A semitruck hauling pigs rolled over, forcing CDOT crews to try to corral the animals.
The pigs were loaded into another vehicle and the interstate reopened just before 8 p.m. There were no reports of any injuries.
The pigs were sprayed down to keep cool. Officials clarified that the pigs lying on the ground were OK.
CDOT said about 20 pigs were injured, but a veterinarian was at the scene evaluating the animals.
