Monkeys escape after truck carrying 100 animals to a laboratory crashes in US

Police in Pennsylvania are searching for at least three monkeys that have escaped after a truck carrying about 100 of the animals was involved in a crash.

The truck carrying the monkeys collided with a dump truck on Friday afternoon in Montour county, Pennsylvania state police trooper Andrea Pelachick told the Daily Item. Local news outlet WNEP said the crash happened along Route 54 just off Interstate 80 near Danville.

The truck had been on its way to a laboratory, Pelachick said.

WNEP said four monkeys were on the loose, with authorities using a helicopter in the search. It was not known what type of monkeys were on the truck, but police released a photograph of one of them in a tree.

It was unclear if any people or animals were injured in the crash.
