SIBLEY, Iowa (AP) - Officials say all the hogs packed into a trailer were killed in a rollover crash north of Sibley on Iowa Highway 9.

The Osceola County Sheriff tells the Sioux City Journal (https://bit.ly/2cNlxw0 ) that the crash happened Tuesday when the semi’s 26-year-old driver swerved to try to avoid a cow in the road. The semi tipped, landing partially in a ditch.

The driver was taken to a local hospital with injuries.

Officials say all the pigs were killed - a loss estimated at $30,000. The semi and trailer, estimated at $145,000, were destroyed.

Deputies say the cow, owned by a Sibley farmer, also was killed.
