Sixteen elk were killed in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 70 at Highway 65 about 1 a.m. Jan. 23, when a semi truck collided with the herd as it was trying to cross the freeway.
The semi jackknifed as it hit the animals, and two cars were involved, one of which rolled over. Luckily, none of the vehicle occupants was hurt seriously enough to be taken to the hospital, said Garry DeJong, chief of Evergreen Fire/Rescue. The names of the individuals involved were not available.
