More than 30 calves were killed after a tractor trailer carrying cattle caught fire on the Thruway near LeRoy.
According to the Associated Press, troopers say almost 150 calves were loaded off the truck, but another 33 either died or had to be euthanized due to injuries.
The burning truck shut down both lanes of traffic for 20 minutes overnight.
Troopers say a tire went flat and caught fire.
The driver was apparently not injured.
