100 Cattle Overturned In Trailer Near Abernathy

DPS troopers say an 18-wheeler carrying more than 100 cattle overturned near Abernathy. About 30 head of cattle died in the wreck. Most of the others escaped and it took several hours to herd them back together. Although, Trooper Benito Gonzales says about ten are still missing.

Gonzales say the driver, Matthew Ochoa, took a turn to fast causing the trailer to overturn, ripping off a large section of the guardrail. Fortunately Ochoa was not injured. Another trailer was sent to take the remaining cattle to their destination in Stratford.
