Cattle Truck Overturns On Kansas Highway

Crews were trying to round up cattle on a Kansas highway after a truck overturned, possibly due to wet conditions.

Sedgwick County officials say the truck was carrying 59 cattle on Kansas 96 near Maize when it overturned early Wednesday. Sheriff’s Sgt. Daniel Oliver says the driver went off the highway, overcorrected and rolled the truck when he tried to get it back on the highway.

He says the driver wasn’t hurt but several cattle got out of the truck and were roaming near the highway. Calls went out for cattle pens to help corral the animals. It wasn’t immediately clear how many cattle escaped.n
