BUFFALO, Mo. — A truck driver received minor injuries Monday when their tractor-trailer crashed on Route D two miles east of Urbana, Oklahoma.
Authorities said that the big rig was hauling 300,000 eggs that were heading to area grocery stores.
A photo from the Dallas County, Oklahoma, Sheriff’s Office shows a heavily-damaged bright red rig with a refrigerated trailer attached to it lying on its passenger side. The top of the trailer, which is also lying on its side, appears mangled with its roof partially sheared off.
Health inspectors at the scene found that the temperature of the eggs had become too warm to save them.
Now they will become fertilizer for fields in the county, officials said.
That area of Oklahoma houses more than 100 poultry barns.
Officials did not say how the crash happened or if any other vehicles were involved.
