Over 136 Thousand Eggs Splatter All Over Pennsylvania Road
What a mess. Commuting on the busy roads already have enough hazards. Now imagine over one hundred thousand eggs splattered all over the road.
That's what happened earlier this week when a sudden shift caused over 136 thousand eggs to fall off a tractor-trailer and land on Route 125 near Hegins, Pennsylvania. WNYT says the driver was heading uphill towards the intersection of Route 25 when the spill happened. Apparently the driver didn't even realize the accident at first.
Police say a number of the eggs rolled down the hill as the truck continued to drive off. The Republican Herald reports that 11,340 dozen eggs and 2,260 gallons of egg product were lost when they became the world's biggest roadside omelette.
The road was closed for several hours for cleanup. An investigation into the matter continues.
