An unknown number of pigs escaped after the 10:30 p.m. accident and authorities spent the rest of the night recapturing them and cleaning up after the wreck.

“Personnel from the sheriff’s office, fire department and Animal Control were on the scene for much of the night,” he said. “In fact, we didn’t clear up until 8 this morning.”
