Eggs served cold on Mich. freeway

Friday, January 2, 2009

YPSILANTI TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- State troopers and road crews had to scramble when a tractor-trailer crashed and spilled its load of eggs.

Trooper Jim Smiley said eastbound Interstate 94 in Ypsilanti Township reopened about 1 a.m. Thursday after being shut down six hours. Low temperatures made for a frozen mess that Smiley said was scraped up by front-end loaders and put in dump trucks.

Road workers then spread sand and salt on all three lanes.

Smiley said the driver will be ticketed.
