  • Pigs on the loose after semi crash on Texas interstate

Dozens of pigs spilled out onto a Texas highway after a semi-truck carrying them flipped over, forcing authorities to round them up.

The accident was reported around 6:30 a.m. CDT, after the semi crashed into a center median in Wilmer, Texas on Interstate 45, KTVT reported.

Some went as far as three or four miles away from the scene of the crash before being ushered back by police. The truck tipped to its side and later caught on fire.

Police say the driver of the truck was not injured and there are no other injuries.
