90 cattle escape rollover crash

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Authorities have found 80 of the nearly 90 cattle that escaped during a rollover crash in Highland County,

According to the Ohio State Patrol, the crash happened just before 10 p.m. Monday on U.S. Route 62.

Officials say a semi truck pulling the cattle went off the road and overturned, creating an opening that allowed about 90 cattle to escape.

Four cattle died as a result of the crash.

Several agencies responded to help find the escaped cattle.

The Ohio Department of Transportation closed U.S. Route 62 near State Route 72 while crews worked to recover the animals. The road has since reopened.

As of Tuesday night, only 10 cattle were still on the loose, according to ODOT. Anyone who sees wandering cattle is asked to call Ohio State Highway Patrol's Wilmington Post at (937) 382-2551.
