BRADENTON, Fla. - No injuries were reported Monday when a cattle trailer came loose from the vehicle and crashed into a fence.

It happened around 12:10pm near the intersection with Natalie Way.  Florida Highway Patrol says 50-year-old Luis Villalobos was driving westbound in a truck towing the trailer when it disconnected.

Authorities say there were five cattle in the trailer.  It is unclear if any of the five cattle in the trailer sustained any injuries.

The roadway is now clear at the scene.
