Cattle killed in crash near Pendleton

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.

The woman driving the van, who is from Elgin, Oregon, was taken to a Pendleton hospital for treatment of minor injuries. No other people were injured.

Police say the crash investigation remains active.
