i-80(AP) — Several cattle died and some were temporarily freed after a semitrailer overturned just off Interstate 80 near Kearney.

The accident occurred around 5 a.m. Tuesday about three miles east of Kearney.  The truck had gone off the roadway and flipped onto its side.

The accident ripped off a portion of the roof and freed some cattle. They were rounded up later.

The truck driver was identified as 73-year-old Donald Brush, of McCook. He was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney and was listed in serious condition.

    Poor man and poor cows. Sad

    I am shocked that this headline and majority of the article are about the cattle. The cattle were 10 miles away from the slaughter house, so I don’t see why that is the focus. A person, a human being, was seriously injured in this accident, and he gets two sentences. If you are sad about the destination not getting their cattle, then wow… Also the roof coming off is a precaution to accidents so that they can get out, it is made to do that. But once again, Don is seriously injured and needs support right now. I hope that he heals as quickly as possible, and that his family gets the love and support that they need right now, not articles focused on cows.
