There are multiple fire departments and law enforcement agencies on the scene as well as park rangers and farmers who worked to corral the pigs. A company from Cleveland is driving down to pick them up. Police say the truck was on the west bound ramp when he lost control and veered into a guardrail. There were two people travelling in the truck. The passenger suffered a minor injury and was removed to the hospital for treatment. The truck was enroute from South Carolina to Indiana. h/t wdtn
