Some cows were injured and killed after a truck lost control and overturned in Oklahoma City. At about 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, OKC Fire responded to an overturned cattle cart with cows trapped inside. The scene was on Highway 44 at the 59th Southwest Street exit, KOCO 5 was told it would take hours before it was cleared, they said no other vehicles were involved and the driver was fine, but the truck lost control and overturned. Which led to the killing and wounding of some cows inside. OKC Fire told KOCO 5 that there were about 90-100 cows inside the trailer. The trailer had two levels and the top level was cleaned up first, they had to cut off the top of the trailer to get the first cows out, but with the truck on its side, they couldn’t get the cattle out of the bottom level. So, they summoned some help to raise it. KOCO 5 was told that of the cattle that have come out so far, 14 have died and 26 have been moved away. They said it could take hours to get those cattle out and clear the place and they are not sure when the road will open again. “We have to pitch the trailer. We have to remove the cattle, and then Battalion Commander David Carter, OKC Fire, said, ‘The vandals are going to have to remove this. It will take several more hours.”
