PRESTON, Kan. (AP) -- Pratt County authorities say a cattle truck rolled over in south-central Kansas, killing 23 cows and closing a highway for several hours.

Sheriff Vernon Chinn says in a news release that the accident occurred in Preston early Friday when the driver of the semi-trailer truck lost control in heavy rain. The truck dropped off a shoulder of Kansas 61, went into a ditch and back on the highway before rolling.

The driver was not injured. The sheriff says 23 of the 145 cattle on board were killed.

Kansas 61 was closed from Pratt to Kansas 14 for nearly four hours before reopening about 5 a.m.
