      Cattle killed in Eastern Oregon crash

      PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) State police say at least 10 cattle died when the truck carrying them fell to its side in a multi-vehicle crash in Eastern Oregon.

      A police spokesman says snow-and-ice caused Tuesday's crash on Highway 204 in Umatilla County.

      The chaos started when a semi-truck slid and got stuck on the highway, causing two other vehicles to collide. It ended a couple vehicles later, when the truck carrying the cattle collided with a van that had stopped just before the crash site.

      The woman driving the van was taken a Pendleton hospital for treatment of minor injuries. There were no other injuries beyond what happened to the cattle.

      Police say the crash investigation remains active.
