Livestock Truck Spills Hogs On Las Vegas Highway

Authorities are still cleaning up the mess left by a truckload of hogs that flipped on a freeway interchange this morning.

The livestock truck overturned just before 10 a.m. after the driver lost control of the rig.

Ten hogs got loose, and several were injured.

The driver of the truck was not.

The accident happened on the I-15 exit ramp off of Highway 215 west.

That ramp remains closed as animal control struggled to deal with injured hogs and workers clear the truck.

Nevada Highway Patrol is expecting the area to reopen around 8 p.m.
