TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A semi-trailer hauling hogs crashed Tuesday morning on northbound Interstate 335 on the Kansas Turnpike about 25 miles south of Topeka.

The crash was reported around 7:15 a.m. Tuesday.

Initial reports indicated some of the pigs that were in the trailer died in the crash.

There was no word on injuries to the semi’s driver.

The crash didn’t result in any lane blockage on the turnpike, authorities said, though the right lane was closed for more than two hours as crews responded to the scene.

The semi appeared to have left the roadway and rolled onto its side in a grassy area immediately east of the northbound lanes on the turnpike.

Additional information wasn’t immediately available.
