4 llamas involved in car crash in SW Florida

PUNTA GORDA, Fla. (AP) — Four llamas are being evaluated at a southwest Florida veterinary hospital after being involved in a crash on Interstate 75.

Charlotte County Fire-Rescue officials said a pickup truck carrying a trailer with four llamas crashed near Punta Gorda, shortly after 2:30 p.m. Monday. The truck crashed into a bridge over the Peace River and the trailer tipped onto its side.

One of the llamas was injured.
