Truck in PA carrying 100 monkeys crashes, some missing

A truck transporting nearly 100 monkeys in Pennsylvania crashed into a dump truck on Friday, and at least three animals made an escape. 

The truck was traveling in Montour County, Penn., on Friday afternoon when the crash occurred, Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Andrea Pelachick told the Daily Item.

She said that the truck was en route to a lab before the crash, the news outlet noted.

Local police have asked the public for help to locate the monkeys, requesting that they call state police if they see them, the Daily Item reported.

It was not clear at the time if any animals or people were injured in the crash, according to the report.
