Some McDonald's locations in the US are experiencing a fry shortage after a truck tipped over. This might be the worst potato-related news I have ever heard.

According to ABC, a truck carrying boxes of McDonald's french fries tipped over on the highway this past week. Now, some southern California McDonald's are experiencing a fry shortage. Thankfully, no one was injured in the crash.

Now that we know everyone is safe, are our french fries safe?! Most likely, yes. I don't think trucks carrying loads of McDonald's french fries tip over daily, so it's unlikely that the recent fry shortage will affect our area. However, it's not impossible.

If you're worried about getting your fry fix, there are plenty of mid-Hudson Valley McDonald's locations to help you out:
