SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a truck carrying more than 150 pigs tipped over after jumping a curb in western Iowa.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2g3nC75 ) more than two dozen of the pigs were dumped out of the truck in the accident around 9 p.m. Thursday in Sioux City.

Authorities contained the pigs to a grassy area, where they grazed until animal control officials arrived with an empty livestock trailer and gates to corral them. More than 100 pigs were still trapped inside the trailer. Sioux City Police Sgt. Jim Cunningham says he suspects that many of those inside were not going to survive the crash.

The driver was uninjured. The pigs were from Ireton, Iowa, and were being taken to Missouri.
