Interstate 5 in Oregon was closed for three hours after a cattle trailer overturned on March 13, loosening more than 30 dairy cows on the highway.
footage of Dave Tragethon shows the trailer, which had overturned near the Wilsonville Road exit, lying on its side as several cows wandered through traffic.
“We were about three or four vehicles behind, behind two semis, from the accident when we noticed cows on the freeway,” Tragethon told Storyful. “All the vehicles stopped as the cows wandered and ran alongside our vehicle.”
The surviving cattle were rounded up and loaded onto another cattle trailer, Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue. he said in a tweetand so declared that the driver “did not require medical transportation.” Credit: Dave Tragethon via Storyful
