Truck Carrying 30,000 Pounds Of Lobsters Overturns

 Friday, March 20, 2015


When a tractor-trailer tips over and spills its edible cargo on the highway, it’s simultaneously sad and hilarious as long as no one is seriously injured. In that case, it would be just sad. Heavy snow in Maine yesterday caused a tractor-trailer accident involving one truck and thousands of lobsters. Before you hop in your car with a trunk full of butter and wearing a bib, you should know that the lobsters did not scatter across the highway, and remain uncooked and alive. According to the driver, he had swerved to avoid a car in the wintery conditions, and the vehicle fell on its side off the highway.
