Truck overturns, piglets run loose for over an hour

GUIZHOU, China -- Traffic control presented an unusual challenge in southwest China when a small truck overturned on an expressway and the truck's cargo made a break for it.

Dozens of piglets escaped from the overturned vehicle and zigzagged across the road, doing their best to avoid traffic cops.

Eventually the little piggies scampered under one of the rescue trucks to cool off out of the sun, finally giving police the chance to wrangle them up and get them off the road.

Overall it took about an hour to get traffic rolling again.
