One might imagine that a big rig loaded with milk crashing off the side of a freeway would be enough to make officials shed a tear, as the California Highway Patrol had to shut down lanes of traffic for hours this morning while they tried to set things to rights again.
According to KTLA.com, the tanker went off the road around 3:30 a.m., spilling much of its milky contents down an embankment and flowing every which way.
Emergency personnel were able to rescue the driver from the wreckage despite the apparent severity of the crash. He was taken to a local hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
But there’s still plenty to shed tears about, if such a thing were allowed — officials are having a tough time pulling the truck off the side of the road, as there could still be enough milk left in the tanker to make it just heavy enough to impede cleanup.
