GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A crash on I-75 in central Florida has snarled traffic after a semitrailer hauling 32 bulls blew a tire and slammed into a tree.
Florida Highway Patrol officials said three of the bulls got loose after Saturday's accident and one had to be shot because it was too aggressive.
The Gainesville Sun (http://tinyurl.com/byu867k) reports a crew of people including cowboys, veterinarians and state troopers, set up chutes with portable metal fences to offload the bulls from the semi into trailers that would transport them to South Florida.
Bryan Martin said he and driver Travis Carr were hauling the bulls from Texas to Indiantown.
The truck driver was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
No other injuries were reported. An entrance to the highway was blocked for several hours.
