The Associated Press
The sheriff's office says the two farm workers who were in the vehicle weren't hurt in Tuesday's crash.
The Albany Democrat-Herald reports (http://is.gd/rYzlQ4 ) that the workers had just loaded nearly 400 sheep into the trailer and were headed to the Tangent area.
Sheriff's reports indicate the rig was traveling about 45 mph and the trailer tipped as it went around a corner.
Sheriff's deputies say some sheep got loose and were running around a nearby golf course.
The crash is under investigation.
