The southbound lanes of Interstate 81 reopened to traffic at 10:54 a.m., three hours after a crash that closed all lanes of the highway and killed 13 cattle being hauled in a tractor-trailer.
The interstate’s northbound lanes opened shorty before 1:30 p.m.
The single tractor-trailer crash took place in the area of mile marker 29 (PA 174 - KING ST.) in Southampton Township, Cumberland County, about 7 a.m. The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured, said state police spokesman Trooper Brent Miller.
Miller said 13 cattle were confirmed dead. Nineteen cows survived the crash.
State police also confirmed, he said, that the cattle were not heading to the Pennsylvania Farm Show, which opens tomorrow at the Farm Show complex in Harrisburg.

I-81 north was closed at mile marker 24 and the southbound lanes were closed at mile marker 37, so that traffic could be rerouted.
Thirteen cattle were killed in the crash and the driver of the tractor trailer was uninjured, Miller said...
