A gruesome stock truck crash near Tekapo this morning led to the highway being closed for some time.

The truck carrying cattle toppled over in dangerous and snowy conditions, forcing the closure of State Highway 8.

Several animals died in the crash, while others ended up wandering on the highway.

Emergency Services and contractors eventually cleared the dead animals and rounded up the survivors.
