JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Drivers had to watch out for escaped pigs Thanksgiving morning on a busy North Florida interstate following a crash between two trucks that let the livestock loose.

The Times-Union reports that two semi-tractor trailer trucks were traveling south on Interstate 95 in northeast Florida just before 4 a.m. when they collided.

The Highway Patrol said one of the trucks carrying the pigs veered off the right side of the highway and overturned, spilling the livestock out onto the right shoulder. The second truck continued down the right side of the highway and also partially rolled over.

No one was injured and all lanes are open after efforts to corral the pigs.

But troopers warn that some of pigs may be wandering loose and drivers should be vigilant.
