Truck spills 165,000 eggs on a northern Virginia highway

the cleaning crew used kitty litter — 250 pounds of it — to absorb the highway omelet then swept it up and took it away in three trash bins,
Close to 165,000 eggs spilled out of an overturned tractor-trailer on the nothern Virginia highway.
"It looked like a large omelet," said Michael Karbonski, of the Virginia Department of Transportation.
It was reported that the tractor-trailer crashed into a guard rail, spilling its load that csused officials to close an exit ramp to Interstate 66 and the far left lane of Interstate 495 north for several hours.
For the driver of the truck to just up and flee the scene , and now is missing , seems to me there is more to this story. He can be count on charges of fleeing and other possible charges say police.
"For him to just up and leave like that, that's kinda odd,"
Meanwhile :
The eggs made their way to a drainage ditch, where they created "a river of yellow yolk."'
It's a good thing it wasn't summer, officials said, because the mess could have been worse. But cold temperatures prevented workers from using any water to clean the road for fear of freezing the eggs and the roadway."
