JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - Authorities in the Jamestown area have responded to a second crash involving a cattle hauler in less than a week.

KQDJ radio reports that officials had to round up 21 cattle Tuesday night after a semitrailer lost traction on a Jamestown hill, slid backward and crashed.

The driver wasn’t hurt, but the gate on the trailer broke and the animals got loose. It took about an hour to round them up.

Last Friday, a cattle hauler crashed on Interstate 94 in the Jamestown area. Twenty-three of the 88 cattle onboard died, and others escaped and had to be rounded up. The driver wasn’t injured.
