Toilet Paper-Plagued Idaho River Finally Flushed Clean

An Idaho truck mishap that left a river clogged with massive rolls of disintegrating, unprocessed toilet paper has finally been cleaned up after weeks of efforts by clean-up crews. The upper Lochsa River was clogged with the waste, foiling sanitation efforts until recently.

The AP reports the crews towed out rolls wrapped with reinforced mesh to completed the efforts.

The truck carrying the toilet paper slid into the river off o U.S. Highway 12. The driver was cited for inattentive driving.
