DALLAS, Tx. (WTVR) - The fastest highway in the country opened in Texas earlier this week, and already there's a problem.

Dashcam video from police show packs of wild hogs running across the highway the night before it opened.

About 24 hours after it opened, at least three cars crashed into them. One car had to be towed due to the damage.

The police chief there says it's more dangerous for drivers if they swerve to avoid them. The chief goes on to say that drivers are better off steering straight into one.
