DALLAS (KXAN) — Traffic on Interstate 45 near Dallas is at a complete standstill as dozens of people work to corral pigs that got loose after the trailer they were in crashed.
KXAS in Dallas reports the crash happened around 6:45 a.m. Thursday in Wilmer. Both directions of I-45 were closed between Pleasant Run Road and Belt Line Road.
