Cattle truck overturns

On Nov. 10, at 2:30 a.m. Colman Fire and Rescue was called to I-29 mile marker 102 for a cattle pot loaded with 600 pound calves that had tipped over in the median. Conditions at the time were foggy and rain. A total of 16 had escaped out the rear compartment and one was hit by a different semi before firefighters had even gotten on scene. They called for mutual aid to Trent Fire Department and Dell Rapids Fire Department to shut down the interstate and to help corral and off load the cattle along with some local farmers. It took about four and one-half hours to get everything cleaned up. Submitted by Mike Baumberger.
