Today has been truly bizarre on the news front. In Indianapolis, a truck crash and spilled 45,000 pounds of butter on I-465 causing the world’s slipperiest road. Officials eventually called in a sand truck, which then promptly crashed. There are days when a highway trooper just wants to stay at home.
The diary truck crashed around 3:30 am and clean up efforts failed. Then the sand truck called in this morning rolled over on its way to the scene.
The truck driver reportedly admitted fell asleep before his rig crashed and split in half.
Cleaning up a butter spill in summer presents uniquely bad conditions of a highway crew. Clearly they have not called the real experts in such a crash:

Grits and butter….
barkindog, Not sure I agree with you about leaving the butter. Unless the weather is hot, it’s not going to melt. Solid or soft butter just doesn’t move And, if it does get really hot and melt, it doesn’t mix with water so rain isn’t likely to wash it off,. Maybe high pressure water from a hose. The force be with you. But you’re right about the sand. it’s needed down the road right away.
How many years before the troopers can see the humor in this?
