Pigs escape after 3 semis collide on I-94


Eastbound I-94 near Barnesville was shut down Sunday as authorities wrangled several loose pigs after a crash involving three semis.

KSTP reports one semi was carrying pigs and another was hauling cattle, which remained trapped.

Responders constructed a temporary enclosure to keep the pigs from wandering off and a second trailer was brought in to transport them, according to FOX 9.

No one was injured.

The Minnesota State Patrol temporarily closed a freeway exit and the eastbound lanes of I-94 near State Highway 34.

Driving conditions from blowing snow cause several vehicles to spinout in the area.

Barnesville is located approximately 30 miles southwest of Detroit Lakes, Minn.
