The driver was not seriously injured.

The big rig crashed into the center median on the highway around 6:30 a.m., turning on it's side and bursting into flames. One group made a break for it and were found half-a-mile away before being ushered back by police.

The crash involved two 18-wheelers and a vehicle.

Firefighters sprayed water on the pigs to help keep them cool in the sweltering Texas heat. The truck tipped to its side and later caught on fire.

It was really just that thing of amping up the stakes and showing the moral consequences and showing the human collateral of it. The punchline is that star Ansel Elgort was born in 1994, a good six months before that opening number was released in stores.

Law enforcement officials spent the next several hours rounding up dozens of pigs.

The semi was hauling pigs, many of which escaped the trailer and were running on the highway, the station reported.

Police struggled to capture the pigs, which sprinted miles in both directions on the roadway, as both the northbound and southbound lanes were closed.

There's no word yet on what caused the crash or where they were headed.
