121 Sheep Killed in Trailer Crash in Utah


A semitrailer left the roadway and crashed on a highway west of Cedar City, killing 121 sheep it was hauling.

The Utah Highway Patrol says the truck was pulling double trailers full of sheep when the wreck occurred Thursday on State Route 56.

Troopers say they’re trying to determine whether a mechanical problem caused the accident about 10 miles west of Cedar City, and it doesn’t appear the driver was impaired or distracted.

The driver, whose name wasn’t immediately released, was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
