~CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - The Linn County Sheriff's Office says a ramp from Highway 13 to Highway 30 was closed when a truck hauling hogs overturned.
 
     The sheriff's office says the crash happened about 10 a.m. Monday when a truck driven by 26-year-old Benjamin Hogan, of Monticello, lost control on the ramp and struck the guard rail.
 
     The truck's trailer tipped onto its side, killing or injuring some of the hogs inside.
 
     The ramp was closed while crews removed the hogs, moved the trailer and repaired the guard rail.
 
     Hogan was cited for failure to maintain control and for not having an insurance card.
