Semi Trailer Overturns in Topeka

A semi-trailer full of cattle overturned in west Topeka early this (MON) morning, and the situation initially looked bad. But officials are happy with the outcome. The 39 head of cattle were successfully off-loaded onto other trailers without injury. According to fire department spokesman Greg Bailey, the driver was able to walk away from the crash.

Bailey says the semi was part of a convoy headed from Texas to Nebraska when the driver mistakenly took the wrong exit off Interstate 470. The semi struck a median and overturned at around 3:30 this (MON) morning, shutting down a portion of Wanamaker Road for almost six hours. A hazmat crew from Olathe was called to clean up about 100 gallons of diesel fuel that spilled onto the road.
