SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – Talk about a crab roll. About 75,000 pounds of frozen crab meat _ more than 37 tons _ spilled out of a truck leaving Salt Lake City.
Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Todd Johnson says the truck’s driver miscalculated a turn and over-steered to the right. The tractor-trailer hit a metal guard rail and sign post, which ripped open its side.
The trailer toppled over near dawn Friday, spilling most boxes of crab and some of the meat onto I-15 near Spanish Fork.
The driver and a passenger went to the hospital with minor injuries.
Johnson says a similar spill happened about 15 years ago when a smaller truck hauling seafood dumped its contents onto a Utah road.
Cleanup crews are working to clean up the mess.
