Traffic was turned into quite a mess for drivers on a flyover in Hanoi on Friday, and a few dozens of pigs were to blame.
A truck whose double-deck cargo was packed with pigs was traveling on the flyover heading to Thanh Tri Bridge in the capital city when the swines fell off from beneath the vehicle, according to footage by newswire VnExpress.
As soon as they reached the ground, the animals started running around the street, while some others chose to rest beneath the truck, sending the driver to struggle to catch them back.
Many other vehicles thus had to stop to wait for the swines to be caught, slightly tying traffic up on the flyover, according to the video seen by Tuoi Tre News.
VnExpress said the incident happened at around 3:00 pm Friday, and the footage was supplied by one of its readers.

A Hanoi traffic police team was deployed to the scene to handle the situation and restore traffic, according to newswire Tri Truc The.
The floor of the truck’s cargo had allegedly collapsed, sending the pigs out to the street, according to police.
The driver later had to ask another truck to come to help carry part of the pigs to continue his journey.
He was booked for “unsafe goods transportation,” according to the traffic police officers.
