LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A semi carrying "cow guts" spilled its load on Slaton Highway around 4 p.m. in the westbound lanes near Lubbock Truck Sales.

The spill happened around 4 p.m., according to employees with Lubbock Truck Sales, but a clean up crew was not able to make it to the area until around 5 p.m. Because the spill happened near an intersection traffic behind the truck was backed up nearly a quarter of a mile.

There is no word on how the spill happened, but crews were able to clean up the lost load at around 6 p.m. The truck was able to haul off the remainder of the cow parts to a different location.

KCBD is following the situation and will update you as information becomes available.
