Squid and Broccoli

A truck hauling 30,000 pounds of squid dumped its load into a broccoli field Tuesday near Soledad, California.

The driver, a 71-year-old Oxnard man, was uninjured in the crash and no other vehicles were involved, the California Highway Patrol said.

The truck was traveling south on Highway 101, south of Los Coches Road, when the driver allowed the truck and trailer to go off the road, overturning on a dirt frontage road adjacent to the highway, CHP officers said.

As the truck and trailer flipped, the load of squid spilled onto the frontage road and into a broccoli field.

The highway was not blocked, but everyone involved in the cleanup probably lost their appetite. Link -via Arbroath
