Semi-Trailer Carrying Cattle Almost Slides into Snake River after Accident in Pasco
PASCO, WA (February 4, 2019) – Late Monday afternoon, a herd of cattle were stranded along Snake River after a semi-truck collision on Highway 12.
Around 4:43 p.m., Pasco Police responded to calls about a serious crash near the Snake River. According to reports, the semi-truck driver lost control as he was trying to avoid striking a white Chevy Cruze head-on. As they both attempted to make a turn onto southbound Sacajawea Park Road, the driver of the semi had no way of stopping in time when he veered off the road and down a steep embankment.
The cattle were let out and went bounding up a large hill before they were eventually herded back together and placed on another vehicle.
Following the accident, the semi was stuck on the river bank for some time before towing crews could later pull it back up the embankment.
Washington State Officials say the trailer carrying the fed cattle was heading from Canada to a packing plant in Washington. Reports indicate the driver of the Chevy Cruze could face a potential infraction for causing the collision.
When driving a vehicle, it is important to stay cautious and alert at all times, as unexpected occurrences on the road happen all too often.
