    BERKLEY, Iowa (AP) — Up to 200 pigs spilled out of a truck after it rolled onto its side in a rural area southwest of Boone.

    KCCI-TV reports a truck and trailer toppled over Tuesday morning at an intersection in the small community of Berkley, about 15 miles from Boone.

    Authorities say the driver didn’t report any injuries but was taken to a hospital for an examination.

    The trailer was carrying 150 to 200 hogs. Some wandered off while others were resting near the trailer.

    Officers from the Iowa State Patrol and Boone County were working with other crews to round up the pigs.
