HUMBOLDT, S.D. (AP) - A semi carrying a load of about 160 hogs rolled over in Minnehaha County, killing some of its cargo.

The Highway Patrol says the 25-year-old semi driver from Winfred wasn’t seriously hurt in the accident on an Interstate 90 ramp near Humboldt Wednesday. Twenty-six hogs were killed when the semi overturned while the driver was trying to turn left from Highway 19 to the I-90 ramp.

The Argus Leader says farmers in the area and relatives of the driver helped unload the remaining hogs.
