35,000 Pounds of Eggs Spilled on Dallas Freeway


A fan of scrambled eggs? Almost a quarter of a million eggs were spilled on a highway in Dallas, Texas. It sounds like that might take a bit of time to clean up.

An 18-wheeler was carrying the eggs on Interstate 30 near Interstate 45 when the semi hauling the trailer full of eggs left the freeway and crashed into the guardrail. The big rig stopped once it hit a bridge support. The crash happened at around 4am on the westbound RL Thornton Freeway at Malcolm X Boulevard.

The impact of the crash on the vehicle ripped open the trailer, scrambling around 35,000 pounds of eggs onto the highway. Talk about a sticky situation.

The driver of the truck was not injured, but the crash did cause major traffic delays while crews worked tirelessly to clean up the mess.

At this time, the Texas Department of Transportation will also inspect the damaged bridge support to see if there are any problems that need to be fixed.

The Dallas County sheriff’s deputies are currently investigating the cause of the crash.
