Truck carrying hogs overturns in Montco. Jim Gardner reports during Action News at 11 p.m. on May 25, 2017.

Police are investigating an accident involving a tractor-trailer carrying hogs in Hatfield, Montgomery County.

It happened after 6 p.m. Thursday along the 2700 block of Clemens Road.

Initial reports say a driver from Ohio was transporting about 160 hogs when the truck's weight shifted while making a left turn, which caused the truck to overturn.

It appears the majority of the hogs are okay, but will be checked by a veterinarian and then the Board of Health.

The driver was not injured.
