Semi-truck with trailer of cows overturns in crash on ramp from I-94 to I-75

A massive cleanup is underway on the I-94 ramp to I-75 in Detroit after a semi-truck rollover transporting 38 cows.

The driver - hauling 38 cows - lost control and overturned on the ramp from westbound I-94 to southbound I-75 a little after 3 p.m. The freeway ramp will be closed for several hours, according to Michigan State Police. 

As of 10 p.m. workers continue to move the cows from the overturned semi into a new trailer. They are now cutting a second hole to get the rest, according to an update from Michigan State Police.

"Once the live cows are moved they will be able to get the damaged trailer up right and towed from the scene," tweeted state police. "Looking at midnight so far."
