Pigs Fly out of Truck in Iowa City, Create Mess

  • Photo

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Iowa City police and a semi driver ended up in a messy situation after a load of dead pigs was tossed from a semi onto Highway 1 Thursday evening.

The semi driver says he was slowing for a stoplight when the “greasy” pigs started flying out of the back of the trailer, which had an open top. The pigs ended up in the eastbound lanes of Highway 1 near the intersection of Sunset Street.

“It started raining pigs,” the semi driver said.

Police shut down a portion of the road while a skid loader scooped up the pigs and put them back in the truck. As of seven o’clock the area remained blocked while police and the driver figured out how to clean up the mess left on the roadway, which carried a heavy stench and maggots.

A passing driver said he saw more pigs on the roadway in various spots as he was driving in from Kalona.
