A semi truck hauling the cattle overturned just after 1 p.m. Wednesday.

The incident happened on south-bound I-15 at the I-90 junction and no other vehicles were involved in the crash.

The Montana Highway Patrol reports speed was a factor and the driver lost control of the truck on the sharp curve at the interchange.

The truck was hauling 37 cows. One cow was euthanized at the scene due to severe injuries, all the other animals survived.
