A semi-truck carrying pig intestines lost its load Thursday morning, strewing animal parts across Interstate 670 in downtown Kansas City.


An emergency response truck with a snow plow blade was sent to the scene near westbound I-670 and Broadway to push the pork product to the side of the road, said Markl Johnson, a spokesman for the Missouri Department of Transportation.


The spill shut down three of the four lanes. Johnson said it could take until noon for the road to reopen.
