Tater Trouble: Overturned Trailers Spill Potatoes and French Fries

Taters take a tumble! A tractor trailer filled to the brim with potatoes tipped over, leaving a starchy mess in its wake.

According to yourcentralvalley.com, an incident on Northbound Highway 99 in California caused a major disruption as traffic came to a halt due to an overturned semi-truck carrying a load of potatoes.  The accident occurred just before 7 a.m. on June 20.

The mishap left the trailer of the big rig leaning against the center median, slightly hanging over into the southbound lanes. Authorities swiftly responded to the scene following the accident, and no injuries were reported.

This potato pileup comes after a different semi hauling french fries overturned in Utah earlier this week. Fox 13 reported that an 18-wheeler hit a light post and scattered fries all over I-15.
