Default The most awesomest truck accident evar (cookies!)

14 tons of spilled Oreo cookies snarl Ill. traffic

MORRIS, Ill. (AP) - Got milk?

Police say a trailer loaded with 14 tons of double-stuffed Oreos has overturned, spilling the cookies still in their plastic sleeves into the median and roadway.

Illinois State Police Sgt. Brian Mahoney says the truck's driver was traveling from Chicago to Morris on Interstate 80 around 4 a.m. Monday when he fell asleep at the wheel and slammed into the median.

"The boxes came out of the trailer and boxes were ripped open," he said.

The crash about 50 miles southwest of Chicago remains under investigation.
Mahoney says no charges have been filed but both lanes of traffic remain closed while authorities remove the cookies.

Good thing they were double-stuffed.

They say Mallomars are the safest cookies to drive with in case of accident, because of their cushioning effect.

That's so funny. =)

Does anyone read Janet Evanovich? She writes the Stephanie Plum series. There was one book in there towards the beginning where a woman had to get bonded out because she hijacked a cheesy poof truck and ate the inventory on it. =D

After reading the article I went into such a deep dark depression I wore black to work to mourn the dead cookies. *sigh* what a true waste!

Its just begging for a team of us lot to 'rescue' the road isnt it??

And yups, the Riverdance got standed on the beach... ages ago now, but they couldnt move it again, took off the crates on the deck, but the inside still had biscuits, they are moving them now, the only way to remove the boat is to take it apart from the inside... somebody totally messed up!!

We have had millions of visitors for it though... its a boat, a boat... on sand... really not that thrilling to come and stare at.

Darn. And here in Little Rock we only get wrecks like this:


Pig Intestines Spilled on Highway
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Emergency service workers had their stomachs turned when they cleaned up a smelly mess of spilled pig innards that blocked a busy Arkansas intersection for several hours on Tuesday.
Police said a truck spilled about 1,000 pounds (450 kg) of hog intestines fresh from a packing plant. The mess in the state capital, Little Rock, left several cleanup workers queasy. "It was horrible. Oh, it was bad," said Sgt. Terry Hastings of the Little Rock police department.
The truck was carrying the entrails from a rendering plant to a facility where dog food is manufactured when the driver made an abrupt stop. The container was covered only by a tarp, which did not prevent the viscera from sloshing into the crossroads, police said. Firefighters used bleach and fire hoses to flush away the mess.
When asked to describe the scene, Hastings was almost at a loss for words. "Nasty, nasty. Phew," Hastings said.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
(That happened a couple of years ago, and I'm fairly sure I posted about it somewhere here at the time.

Those Arkansas cops. I tell you.

He was probably just saying that because he wants all those yummy rotted pig innards for himself and his family.

Here's a link about the oreo cookies...

It has a video and a picture...

http://www.autoblog.com/2008/05/19/c...traffic-in-il/


Here in Sacramento.... We had a truck carrying bees overturn here awhile back.. I think it was in March. I was coming home from the Bay area that day and had to drop a friend off. There was major traffic and we had no idea why. As we got close to the ramp we saw the overturned big rig... and bee colonies on the side of the road... That night I heard that about 10 million bees got loose.

I'm glad I didn't live in the area..

What do you call it when a truck full of double-stuffed Oreos, a truck full of angry bees and a truck full of rotting hog innards all have a pile-up on the freeway?

Oh, yeah--I forgot about this:

Barges crash at lock and dam on Arkansas River

Associated Press - May 9, 2008 6:34 PM ET
MORRILTON, Ark. (AP) - A set of barges crashed into a lock and dam on the Arkansas River near Morrilton, capsizing at least one barge.
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials say the crash happened around 3 a.m. Friday when fog hovered over the river. Officials say one barge carried molasses, another urea.
As of Friday afternoon, one barge remained capsized, held broadside by the current against the Arthur V. Ormond Lock and Dam. The lock was closed after the crash.
The corps says their investigation into the crash continues.

Information from: KATV-TV, http://www.katv.com/

Mmm...molasses and piss. Goes good over pig innards.

30,000 Pounds of Bananas
by Harry Chapin

It was just after dark when the truck started down
the hill that leads into Scranton Pennsylvania.
Carrying thirty thousand pounds of bananas.
Carrying thirty thousand pounds (hit it Big John) of bananas.

He was a young driver,
just out on his second job.
And he was carrying the next day's pasty fruits
for everyone in that coal-scarred city
where children play without despair
in backyard slag-piles and folks manage to eat each day
about thirty thousand pounds of bananas.
Yes, just about thirty thousand pounds (scream it again, John) .

He passed a sign that he should have seen,
saying "shift to low gear, a fifty dollar fine my friend."
He was thinking perhaps about the warm-breathed woman
who was waiting at the journey's end.
He started down the two mile drop,
the curving road that wound from the top of the hill.
He was pushing on through the shortening miles that ran down to the depot.
Just a few more miles to go,
then he'd go home and have her ease his long, cramped day away.
and the smell of thirty thousand pounds of bananas.
Yes the smell of thirty thousand pounds of bananas.

He was picking speed as the city spread its twinkling lights below him.
But he paid no heed as the shivering thoughts of the nights
delights went through him.
His foot nudged the brakes to slow him down.
But the pedal floored easy without a sound.
He said "Christ!"
It was funny how he had named the only man who could save him now.
He was trapped inside a dead-end hellslide,
riding on his fear-hunched back
was every one of those yellow green
I'm telling you thirty thousand pounds of bananas.
Yes, there were thirty thousand pounds of bananas.

He barely made the sweeping curve that led into the steepest grade.
And he missed the thankful passing bus at ninety miles an hour.
And he said "God, make it a dream!"
as he rode his last ride down.
And he said "God, make it a dream!"
as he rode his last ride down.
And he sideswiped nineteen neat parked cars,
clipped off thirteen telephone poles,
hit two houses, bruised eight trees,
and Blue-Crossed seven people.
it was then he lost his head,
not to mention an arm or two before he stopped.
And he slid for four hundred yards
along the hill that leads into Scranton, Pennsylvania.
All those thirty thousand pounds of bananas.

You know the man who told me about it on the bus,
as it went up the hill out of Scranton, Pennsylvania,
he shrugged his shoulders, he shook his head,
and he said (and this is exactly what he said)
"Boy that sure must've been something.
Just imagine thirty thousand pounds of bananas.
Yes, there were thirty thousand pounds of mashed bananas.
Of bananas. Just bananas. Thirty thousand pounds.
of Bananas. not no driver now. Just bananas!"
