An Indiana truck has caused high havoc among the locals after the traffic was closed thanks to the spill of 18000 kilograms of Ice creams on the highway.
18,000 Kilograms that is 40000 pounds. Sounds like the Ice cream lovers would have wished to be that spot. Lol!
The Journal Gazette reports the spill happened about 4 p.m. Friday and was expected to be totally cleaned up by late Friday. One southbound lane remained open initially, then the other was re-opened an hour later.
How the Ice Cream Spill happened?
Police say the truck was trying to enter the interstate from a ramp when it tipped.
According to the Journal Gazette, “The crash itself did not cause ice cream to spill onto the interstate. But when two large tow trucks used cables to drag the rig closer to the shoulder, hundreds of 1.5-quart containers – the kind you’d see in a grocery store – came out of the top of the trailer, which had cracked open.”
And, the newspaper quotes police as saying, since most of the containers were intact and temperatures were close to freezing, it looked like much of the ice cream would be salvageable! It was loaded onto another truck.
Police say the truck driver had minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital to be checked out.
