GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WTVR) -- Deputies responding to a semi-truck crash in Florida suddenly found themselves running for their lives when bulls came charging out of the tractor trailer.

It happened over the weekend near Gainesville after a semi hauling 32 bulls on I-75 crashed, letting four of the animals loose.

A patrol car captured a deputy trying to dodge one of the bulls. However, just moments later, that same trampled a sergeant.

The sergeant was treated for bruises to his ribs and knee.

The bull that charged him was put down, the other three were captured.
