GLENDALE, Ariz. — Multiple cows broke free from a trailer after a crash on the Loop 101 freeway in Glendale, Arizona, Friday morning, after a crash involving the trailer.
The vehicle crashed into the median near Maryland Avenue on Loop 101 in Glendale, the Arizona Department of Public Safety said, according to KSAZ. That was when the gate to the trailer opened and the cows were freed.
The cows were running loose on the freeway, causing a traffic backup. DPS troopers were able to corral the animals off the right shoulder and worked to make arrangements to remove them from the area, according to KPNX.
KSAZ reported that the cow owners worked on getting to the crash to load the cows onto another one of their trailers.
The driver was not injured but a cow died at the scene and two others had to be euthanized, according to KPNX.
No further information has been released.
