Animals killed in truck rollover

User Rating: / 0

At least 20 animals died yesterday after a triple-trailer cattle truck rolled in the Kimberley.

The truck was carrying 160 to 180 head of cattle when it crashed on Great Northern Highway, about 75km east of Fitzroy Crossing, at 9pm.

It is believed one of the trailers may have swayed off the road, causing the driver to lose control.

Local residents and truck drivers stopped to help the driver after the cabin and all three trailers rolled.

About 20 animals died on impact or had to be euthanised by attending police officers.

A police spokesman said this number may have since increased.

The crash scene was cleared about 5.30am today.
