AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (AP) - A highway in northeast Ohio has reopened after authorities spent hours rounding up cattle that escaped when a tractor-trailer overturned.

WKBN-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1JpIWbB ) that a tractor-trailer carrying cattle went off the side of the road, hit a guardrail and overturned Monday night on Interstate 80 in Austintown.

Ohio State Highway Patrol Lt. Nakia Hendrix says rounding up the cows to get the highway reopened wasn’t easy. Several fire departments, police agencies and residents assisted in the search, along with a plane equipped with heat sensors to track the cows.

Humane agent Dave Nelson estimates there were about 35 cows in the trailer at the time of the crash. Some the cows were killed in the crash or are badly injured.

Authorities say are investigating the accident.
