(WICHITA, Kan.) — A double decker animal trailer carrying more than 220 goats blew a tire and rolled into a ditch, near 47th Street South and the Kansas Turnpike, authorities said.
About a half dozen goats were killed in the Friday morning accident. The trailer was demolished and goats spilled into a grassy area separating the north and south lanes of the turnpike.
No people were hurt.
Lois Faller of Minnesota, told Eyewitness News she picked up the load of goats in Purcell, Oklahoma Friday morning and was driving them back home, where her son cares for and sells the animals.
"He put all new tires and rims and brakes on the trailer. It should have been good," she said.
"If it had to happen this was probably the place for it to happen because they went down into this contained ditch area so we were able to keep all the animals off the roadway," said Lt. Phil Bostian of the Kansas Highway Patrol.
