A truck carrying 180 pigs came off the road at the 16th kilometer of the Pärnu – Rakvere - Sõmeru highway on Thursday, killing some of the animals on board.

ERR's Pärnu correspondent Verner Vilgas, who was at the scene, said that at 2 p.m. on Thursday the pigs were in the forest, while another truck had been brought along to pick them up.

"Unfortunately, there are also fatalities [among the pigs]. It's quite an unpleasant sight," said Vilgas.
