Traffic was snarled for hours Monday morning after a livestock truck carrying 89 calves tipped over on the I-285 East ramp at the I-75 interchange in Cobb County, Georgia north of Atlanta. The truck was headed from Florida to northwest Georgia.
Eleven cows died in the crash and several dozen were loose and had to be rounded up. The last one was corralled at about 8 p.m. Monday, according to news reports.
The as yet unidentified driver of the tractor-trailer was taken to an area hospital with injuries.

Another up close look at the overturned tractor trailer that released an estimated 89 cows onto the interstate. We’re #WorkingForYou to get this crash cleared, but this will take a while. pic.twitter.com/QUcGndg8qe— Georgia DOT (@GADeptofTrans) October 1, 2018
This could be just about the last cow. Police rounded up this one around 4pm near Northside Dr. on the eastbound side of I-285. There may be one more, but that's not confirmed. pic.twitter.com/2zT2QtFRyB— NaviGAtor511 (@511Georgia) October 1, 2018
