HAZELTON, N.D.–A semi truck carrying approximately 72 head of cattle tipped over, killing some of the cattle near Hazelton.

The semi driver was traveling Southbound on U.S. Highway 83 when he slowed to make a left turn into a Cenex gas station.

As the truck was turning, the weight of the cattle shifted causing the semi to turn over on its right side and land partially in the ditch.

A total of 13 cattle were killed. Some died in the initial crash and some had to be euthanized due to injuries sustained in the crash.

No charges will be filed against the semi driver. The North Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
