Cattle Unharmed In Trailer Accident

Two cows on their way to market have a brief stay of execution, this after a rancher's trailer comes unhooked along Interstate 70.

The accident happened in the east bound lanes just past the 24 Road exit and the Colorado State Patrol says once unhooked the trailer rolled onto its side, coming to rest against the guardrail.

The cows were not hurt in the accident and traffic was delayed for nearly an hour while crews righted the trailer.

The rancher was cited for hauling an unsafe load.
