Cowboys On Horesback Catch Cattle After Crash

KSAL StaffAugust 9, 2013

Horses, cowboys and rescue personnel worked together to clear the wreckage of a cattle truck that closed westbound lanes of Interstate 70 near downtown Kansas City.

The accident occurred about 3:45 a.m. Friday and the westbound lanes of the interstate weren’t reopened until about 10:30 a.m.

Police say the driver told them the accident occurred when his load of about 80 cattle shifted, causing the truck to overturn.

Six of the cows were killed or had to be put down because of their injuries.

Cowboys on horses were called in to lasso one cow that escaped. The remaining cattle were trapped in the wreckage.

The truck driver was not injured and a passenger suffered minor injuries.
