Texas highway closed due to pigs on the loose

Just weeks after a similar incident on a highway in Osaka, Japan, a large truck carrying live pigs overturned after crashing and catching fire just southeast of Dallas, Texas, leaving the animals wandering along the highway.

The crash occurred on Thursday morning on Interstate-45.

The 18-wheeler flipped over then caught fire, freeing a number of pigs but killing several others.

The driver was not injured. The crash shut down both sides of the highway for several hours.
