LONDON, Ky. (WHAS11) – Traffic was halted for a short time after an early morning farm truck crash Wednesday on U.S. 25.

The truck was transporting pigs from an Indiana farm to a sausage plant in Tennessee.

According to officials, 80 pigs were on board and some were able to escape their trailer through a vent in the roof.

Firefighters and neighbors close to the accident scene corralled the pigs in 6 hours. 

Pigs that were injured in the crash were taken to a local landfill while others were moved to another truck and transported to the factory.
