LITTLE ROCK, AR – Many live fish being transported in a tank met an untimely demise Tuesday morning after a trailer came loose on the I-30.

FOX16 confirms that a trailer carrying three tanks full of live Sunfish became disconnected from the truck towing it south on I-30 around 8:30am Tuesday. The truck was traveling about 60 mph when the trailer disconnected, slid across three lanes of traffic and crashed into the on ramp median at University Avenue, where it came to rest.

One of the tanks of fish came off the trailer and slammed into the retaining wall along the ramp, throwing fish onto the roadway. Traffic on I-30 was not stopped or delayed.

No human injuries were reported, but many fish were injured or killed in the accident.
