Truck Hauling Rotten Meat Crashes and Overturns

Comments Off

A trucking accident on a California highway turned into one big stinky mess on Monday night. A dump truck transporting several tons of expired meat overturned before bursting into flames, sparking a brush fire.

When the truck and ten-ton load of rotten meat overturned, it caused the trailer to split open and the load was strewn all over the highway.

200 firefighters were on the scene to contain the fire resulting from the accident, which quickly spread, charring over forty acres.

The truck driver was transported to the hospital. No further details are available at this time.
