The cattle truck turned over during the morning rush hour on the northbound Highway 287 ramp to Interstate 35W. The road didn't re-open until rush hour on Wednesday afternoon.

Police believe the driver took the turn going too fast and lost control.The trailer tipped over and landed on the ramp wall.

There were about 90 cattle on the truck and not all of them survived the accident. The ones that did were loaded onto livestock transport vehicles and hauled away.

The truck driver was not hurt and traffic was detoured into downtown Fort Worth throughout the day.
