Pigs run loose on Texas highway after truck crashes

Dallas, TX

(Fox News) – A wild scene unfolded on a Texas highway after a tractor-trailer carrying pigs crashed and burst into flames during Thursday morning rush hour, leading the squealing animals to run loose.

The 18-wheeler loaded with the hogs crashed on Interstate 45 in Wilmer, south of Dallas, around 6:30 a.m., KTVT reported. The truck tipped to its side and later caught on fire.

Several pigs spilled onto the road and were seen running around traffic.

The crash closed the interstate in both directions, snarling traffic during rush hour.

It’s unclear what caused the crash at this time or if any pigs died in the fire.

    Want to spare animals from suffering like this? Don’t eat them. These pigs’ bid for freedom should be honored by sending them to sanctuaries.
