All lanes of I-44 in the Joplin area are now clear after they were shut down due to a flipped cattle trailer this morning.
The crash was at the 8.4 mile marker and had both the east and westbound lanes shut down before emergency crews work to cleaned that crash up.
We’ve received reports of cattle in the roadway, but MoDot tells us all cattle have been rounded up.
However, some horses had to be contained in the middle of the interstate. Photos have been provided in a gallery below by Justin Compton.
Traffic had been backed up almost to 3 miles.
