Sioux City commuters dodge beef livers on road

November 30, 2006

A semitrailer dumped its load of beef livers on a highway in Sioux City, blocking morning traffic as officials worked to clean up the mess.

The semitrailer careened off an exit ramp from U.S. Highway 20 to Interstate 29 about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, blocking three lanes of traffic.

The mess delayed traffic for about an hour as firefighters washed blood off the highway and then salted the area to keep it from freezing in the frigid temperatures.

The driver of the truck suffered a cut on his forehead and a possible shoulder injury. He was taken to a local hospital, police said. The driver's name wasn't released.

The semi, owned by Coverleaf Cold Storage of Sioux City, left the road and came to rest on its side in the median, police said.

The cause of the crash remained under investigation.

Turbo! Meeshka said to wait until January 1 to try to talk over the world!! You really should've waited until then to make that truck drop those livers -- did you get any of them???

Shouldn't they have salted the livers instead of the road?

When they say "officials worked to clean up the mess," don't they means Siberians worked to eat up the deliciousness?

Well, Meeshka, the obvious reason is because they were stupid!

What a waste!!! We're only an hour and a half away! We could have been there and helped them!! Wasteful, wasteful, wasteful! Oh what is this world coming too when they spill all this delicious food all over the road, and don't even let us help clean it up!

Tubey, you are right on the nose. They are STUPID. But, that's because they are humans. Duh!
