As many as 100 cows got a brief taste of freedom when they escaped from an overturned 18-wheeler on an interstate in Mississippi Friday.

The truck overturned on I-20 in Jackson, according to Fox 8. The cattle were seen on roads and in a nearby field. Police cornered some of the cows behind a gas station.

One driver who hit a stray cow was hurt, according to Fox 8. It adds that crews eventually wrangled most of the cows into a trailer.

It's not clear what caused the 18-wheeler to overturn.

The truck also spilled diesel fuel onto the road, and workers say it will take hours to clean it up.
