elephants unloaded on I-70 following crash
A group of elephants was unloaded onto Interstate 70 following an accident Thursday. The crash happened at County Road 725, just four miles west of a multi-vehicle accident on I-70.
Indiana State Police said a semi trailer was hauling three elephants when the vehicle slid off the road.
The elephants were “purposefully unloaded” and then “purposefully reloaded” onto the trailer after it was moved back onto the roadway. Officials stressed the pachyderms were not “on the loose at any time,” though initial reports had indicated otherwise.
The elephants were not injured and have since left the scene
