Don’t Cry Over Spilt Milk Watching This Truck Crash In Dallas

A large truck carrying milk was severely damaged on April 2 after crashing heavily in Grand Prairie, Texas.

NBC 5 Dallas reports that the driver fell asleep behind the wheel and authorities were left with a milky clean-up before the roadway could be re-opened for traffic.

Highway camera footage of the accident shows the truck suddenly veer off Interstate 30 at 3:02 a.m. The truck then slides down a grass embankment before plummeting off a ledge at least 10 feet above the sidewalk. Milk can be seen spraying out of the truck as it comes to rest in the middle of an intersection with extensive damage.

Local media reports that the unidentified driver was transported to a local hospital and released with minor abrasions. He was reportedly charged with failure to maintain proper control of a vehicle.

While you may be tempted to cry after seeing so much spilled milk, things could have been much worse. Just imagine if this truck was carrying thousands of gallons of beer? Now that would have been an absolute tragedy.

Last year, a tanker transporting chocolate in Poland crashed, spilling melted goodness across a motorway. We also covered a truck which crashed with hundreds of pizzas onboard back in 2017.

In terms of monetary value, these crashes pale in comparison to a truck which spilled 5500 gallons of printer ink on an interstate highway in Atlanta, Georgia last month. It is reported that the ink lost in that crash may have been worth around $13 million.

    I gotta say, that was a surprisingly smooth landing.

    But again, the cattle are going to get the last laugh.
