A few dozens of pigs caused quite a scene when fell out of a truck and roamed across an elevated highway in Hanoi last week.
The incident happened at around 3 p.m. on Sep. 4 when the truck was carrying hundreds of pigs on the highway section near Tran Duy Hung-Pham Hung intersection, news website kenh14.vn reported.
When a two-storey wooden cage inside the truck somehow broke, the pigs were thrown out of the truck. They ran freely on the highway, forcing other vehicles to stop to avoid hitting them.
The truck driver pulled over and tried to corral the loose pigs with the help of his colleagues from another truck.
Traffic police officers arrived at the scene to direct the congested traffic.
They said the truck driver was fined on charge of "unsafe transportation."
