Cattle truck rolls on Stuart Highway

Posted January 09, 2012

A road train carrying cattle has crashed on the Stuart Highway near Hayes Creek in the state's north.

Police say the last of three trailers being hauled by the road train rolled about 3:00pm yesterday, about 150 kilometres south of Darwin.

No-one was hurt in the incident but three animals were expected to be destroyed.

Police say it is unclear what may have caused the trailer to roll.

Traffic on the south bound lane of the highway was blocked for about 30 minutes.
