McLOUD, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma troopers are warning motorists in Pottawatomie County to watch for wandering bovines after a semitrailer wreck freed some cows and shut down an interstate.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol closed down Interstate 40 near McLoud Thursday morning after the semitrailer overturned. Troopers say the vehicle was carrying about 120 cows. Some of the animals have caused subsequent accidents and have been spotted as far as 5 miles away.

Troopers say a second semitrailer also crashed in the area.

It’s unclear if anyone was injured.
