We hear about multi-vehicle accidents and truck load spills all the time, but I can’t remember another instance of those circumstances coming together to make a giant road omelette.
According to officials on the scene, the first truck overturned after its axle snapped, spilling thousands of eggs all over the roadway. The truck that caused the second accident contained pallets of cheese, according to an eyewitness. And the truck that was hit while parked contained boxes of meat, with an estimated value of $3 million, according to the driver.
An eyewitness described the smell of the spilled meat, eggs and cheese as extremely unpleasant.
Though had it caught fire it would have been delicious.
