Cattle truck catches fire on Toll Road, state police say

Police car

WESTVILLE — An early morning fire involving a truck hauling cattle disrupted traffic, but resulted in no injuries to people or the animals, Indiana State Police said.

This episode of the "Riding Shotgun with NWI Cops" series takes viewers behind the armored vehicles and shields to see what it's like to be a part of the Lake County Sheriff's SWAT team.

The fire, which was reported shortly before 4 a.m., occurred in the westbound lanes of the Indiana Toll Road near the LaPorte-Porter County line, police said.

The truck was removed from the highway, and the cattle were directed onto a second vehicle, according to police.
