The piglets, each about 3 weeks old, were on their way from Johnston County, N.C., to Iowa on Tuesday morning when a vehicle changed lanes and struck the truck transporting them on the city’s I-440 beltway.

The truck then traveled down an embankment and overturned. Squealing piglets were turned loose in morning traffic.
