Pig Roundup On I-45 In Wilmer On Thursday


Authorities had to round up several pigs after a semi crash that has shut down Interstate 45 in Wilmer Thursday morning.

Both directions of I-45 were closed between Pleasant Run Road and Belt Line Road at about 6:45 a.m.

The truck, which tipped onto its side in the crash, was transporting pigs, which scattered on the road.

Live video showed several groups of pigs walking through traffic. One group of pigs made wandered about a half mile away from the scene of the crash before being ushered back by police.

No further details have been released. It's unclear when the interstate will reopen.

Traffic was diverted onto the north and south service roads.
