Crash Spills Lunch Meat, Closes Interstate

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Talk about fried baloney.
A truck hauling lunch meat hit a barricade and
careened out of control Tuesday on a Syracuse
highway, causing its trailer to catch fire.

The 2 a.m crash closed the eastbound lanes
of Interstate 690 for several hours, spilled
several gallons of diesel fuel and left meat
strewn across the road.

Police told WIXT television in Syracuse
the driver was unfamiliar with the highway
and using cruise control when he came to a
curve and lost control.

Jeffrey Nock Jr. of Manheim, Pa.,
who was driving the rig, was treated
and released at a nearby hospital.

No tickets were issued.
