A crash on Interstate 75 in Central Florida snarls traffic after a semitrailer hauling 32 bulls blew a tire and slammed into a tree.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -

Deputies have released the dash camera video depicting the aftermath of a crash on Interstate 75 that let 3 bulls out of a semitrailer that was hauling 32 bulls.

Florida Highway Patrol officials said three of the bulls got loose after Saturday's accident. One had to be shot because it was too aggressive.

In the video, released Tuesday, you can see deputies dodging the bull before jumping out of the way onto the car. Just moments later, the bull hits a sheriff's sergeant.

The sergeant was treated for bruises to his ribs and knee.

Reports say a crew including cowboys, veterinarians and state troopers set up chutes with portable metal fences to offload the bulls from the semi into trailers that would transport them to South Florida.

Bryan Martin said he and driver Travis Carr were hauling the bulls from Texas to Indiantown.

The truck driver was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

No other injuries were reported.

An entrance to the highway was blocked for several hours.
