When a wreck gives you lemons... you have to take a serious detour. No time for lemonade!
An overturned truck hauling fruit tied up Wallace Tunnel traffic through rush hour this morning. According to some reports, the truck was hauling 80,000 pounds of fruit. Those on the scene said it was lemons.
Over the years, we've had several things spill in the tunnel. I remember a truckload of canteloupe back in the day.
And who could forget the overturned cattle truck? As luck would have it, we had an interview scheduled with local cowboy Cody Harris that morning, but he called and apologized profusely, saying "Miss Mary, I've gotta help russle up these cows at the tunnel".... or something to that effect. You never know when you'll need a good cowboy! He also helped with the traffic report....
One thing we HAVEN'T had overturn is a banana truck. But if it ever happens, you need to know this song by Harry Chapin-
