A traffic crash northwest of Lexington has killed some livestock and has authorities rounding up pigs.

WLEX-TV in Lexington reported some of the swine were killed when a tractor-trailer truck rolled on Interstate 24 in Scott County early Monday.

The station quoted police saying the truck was transporting about 80 pigs from Iowa when the driver lost control.
