Truck crash leaves 15,000 pounds full of hot dogs on the road
It’s not every day you see hot dogs strewn all over the highway, but that’s what happened in Pennsylvania recently.
A local newsletter from Rostraver, Penn. explains the situation on Interstate 70. Apparently, a pickup truck carrying about 15,000 pounds of sausage filler crashed and overturned, spilling its contents all over the highway. A photo of the incident was provided by the Rostraver Central Fire Department, and it’s a beautiful sight to see.
You’re probably already familiar with what a sausage filler looks like, but seeing its 15,000 pounds spread out over the highway and the vegetation lining the sides of the road is an entirely different thing. The pink slime appeared to have been transported in giant green plastic bags, and the heavy impact caused them to burst.
The local news reports that the police have identified truck the driver is skirunning and lost control, causing a large wreck. From the truck’s tattered appearance, it was easy to see that this accident happened at high speed. The driver himself was fined for “many” citations, and both he and a passenger suffered minor injuries – both were treated at the scene of the crash.
As for the sausage filler, we suspect it’s no longer edible. And that’s probably for the best. Sorry if we ruined your lunch.
