Truck hauling 4 elephants stalls, blocking Oklahoma highway
EUFAULA, Okla. (AP) The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a truck hauling four elephants has stalled in eastern Oklahoma, blocking one lane of a busy highway.
Patrol Lt. Jarrett Johnson said Wednesday that the commercial vehicle broke down on a portion of U.S. 69 near Eufaula, about 120 miles (193 kilometers) east of Oklahoma City.
Johnson says a wrecker service has arrived to help move the stalled vehicle. He says a veterinarian from the area is also on scene to help move the elephants. Johnson says the lane will remain blocked while the elephants are transferred to another trailer for transportation.
