FAYETTE COUNTY (KWWL) -
The Fayette County Sheriff's Office is investigating after a semi trailer carrying a load of hogs rolls.
It happened on Highway 187 south of Arlington.
Deputies say the semi was carrying about 200 hogs, 60 of which died after the crash. Investigators say the semi driver, Scott Childers, 45, was driving too close to the shoulder and lost control. The semi rolled and ended up in the ditch.
Childers wasn't hurt, but went to the hospital as a precaution. He was charged with Failure to Maintain Control.
The Sheriff's Office says several different agencies, and even neighbors came out to help corral the loose hogs.
