State police say at least 10 cattle died when the truck carrying them fell to its side in a five-vehicle crash in Eastern Oregon.
A police spokesman says snow-and-ice caused Tuesday’s crash on Highway 204 in Umatilla County.
The chaos started when a semi-truck slid and got stuck on the highway, causing two other vehicles to collide.
It ended a couple vehicles later, when the truck carrying the cattle collided with a van that had stopped just before the crash site.
