A cow causes a semi truck carrying fresh pork, of all things, to crash on I-70.

Authorities say this accident happened around 11:30 p.m. Saturday night, but this story actually started on Friday.

A truck carrying cattle rolled on Friday, freeing a bunch of cattle. Authorities managed to round up most of them, but one escaped and caused the accident with a semi driver last night. This was right around mile marker 68.

Authorities say the driver hit the cow, lost controlled and rolled his truck. He was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
