Cattle crash sends cows onto I-495

A tractor trailer overturns sending cattle to graze on the highway.

It happened on I-495 northbound near Terminal Avenue Saturday afternoon.

State Police say Patrick Scholten of Iowa was driving the truck with nearly four dozen cattle inside when a sharp curve in a ramp caused it to overturn.

Three cattle escaped from the trailer and were seen roaming on I-495 until police corralled them.

Scholten wasn't hurt, but he was cited for inattentive driving.
