World's colourful crash? Printer ink truck turns in U.S.
10 March 2011
A tractor trailer carrying printer ink cartridges went wheels up on an a ramp linking Massachusetts Route 128 and Interstate 95 near Peabody, Mass. U.S. yesterday morning. The wreck blocked traffic for hours while state police and an environmental cleanup company worked to clear the rubbish.
State police said the accident isn't expected to cause any environmental damage, but it sure did make the interstate look like a Jackson Pollock vision (that, or a season's worth of Dexter). No word yet on how much dough all that printer ink is worth, but if OfficeMax prices are anything to go by, we're probably lucky that the spilled contents didn't derail the stock exchange.
