Cattle truck rolls


Cattle truck rolls

Holy cow: locals and members of the Fish Creek CFA help release cattle were stuck in the truck.

A CATTLE truck rolled over along Buffalo-Tarwin Lower Road early this morning (Wednesday), although the driver escaped serious injury.

The truck, carrying 86 head of Red Angus cattle, was allegedly forced to swerve around a tight bend to avoid an oncoming collision with another truck.

“There were two trucks, one coming each way, and one of them was on the wrong side of the road which has pushed this bloke across,” Leading Senior Constable Andy Boldiston of Leongatha Police said.

“He was basically just a passenger after that. It was lucky there were no injuries.”

Police from Foster and Leongatha were on the scene as well as fire and emergency crews from Fish Creek to help release cattle from the truck.

A worker from a knackery had been called to destroy injured cattle.
