2,200 piglets spilled onto U.S. Route 35 from crashed truck


Others piglets ran in the woods into an area where coyotes are supposed to come. “There’s quite a few pigs that got out and ran from the accident. They’re in the woods. I don’t think we’ll ever get all of them, I really, really don’t. We’ll try as hard as we can to retrieve all of them, but we probably won’t retrieve all of them,” Xenia Township Fire Chief Dean Fox said. Officials have not said where the semitrailer was going or where it was coming from. The surviving pigs will be recovered by the company owning them. Route 35 reopened at 3 a.m., after about 8 hour. The driver, who is from South Carolina was cited for failure to control a motor vehicle. His fiancee who was with him in the truck was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
