Filer, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) - Nearly two dozen cows are dead after an accident in Twin Falls County Tuesday afternoon.

The sheriff's office says 48–year old Kenneth Womack of Boise was headed southbound on 2600 East around three.

He didn't make the curve at 2900 North and his truck and trailer overturned.

Twenty–one of the fifty–five cattle onboard were killed.

Womack was transported to St. Luke's Magic Valley with minor injuries.

He was also cited for driving too fast for the conditions.

It took law enforcement 4 1/2 hours to clean up the scene.
