UNDATED - Authorities in northwestern Minnesota were busy rounding up pigs along Interstate 94 after a semitrailer crash closed part of the highway.

The crash on Sunday happened near Barnesville and involved three semis, including one carrying about two dozen pigs and another hauling cattle. After the crash, the pigs were seen grazing in a snowy area near a flipped over semitrailer.

State Patrol Sgt. Jesse Grabow said it was taking some time to round up the pigs. He said the cattle were trapped in the semi and were not loose.

Driving in the area is difficult due to snow and blowing snow.

The Minnesota State Patrol says the crash temporarily closed a freeway exit, and eastbound lanes of I-94 at State Highway 34. Motorists were advised to seek alternative routes.
