Twitter Had A Field Day With The Deli Meat Truck That Crashed Into The Bread Truck

Sandwich-Crash

Bread and deli meat were spewed across several lanes of a New Jersey Freeway Friday morning after two delivery trucks collided. The crash resulted in a pile up of deli meat and hamburger buns, which scattered across the freeway in the accident, covering all but one southbound lane.

The collision caused backups for several miles, spanning multiple exits. The accident on Interstate 287’s Southbound Lanes occurred just before 6am. First responders on the scene cleaned up the sandwich ingredients. Most of the cleanup was contained by 7:30am.

The irony of the crash was not lost to the many Twitter users who took full advantage of the delicious collision.

Even T-Mobile’s CEO took part in the fun.

No one was injured, but somewhere sandwich lovers may be going without some key ingredients.

This Dude Stole A Semi Full Of Coors And Ran Himself Over With It

Coors-Cans-Stk

Sometimes, we can’t help but have a bad day. Take this beer thief, for example. In an attempt to steal a trucked loaded with beer, he ran himself over with the very same truck before getting arrested.

Gregory Miller, 56, allegedly entered a parked 18-wheeler Coors Light beer truck and drove off with it, reports WRBL.com. The truck had been parked in the lot of a Colorado Circle K where the driver had made a stop early Monday morning. When he returned to the lot, he discovered the truck was missing and quickly called the police.

Eventually, the police caught up with Miller who led them on a chase. With the vehicle still running, Miller leaped from the truck.

Unfortunately for Miller, the moving semi-truck ran over his leg.

Miller was arrested and taken to the hospital where he was treated for a serious wound and a possible broken leg. He’s facing two charges in relation to the incident.

Jumping from a moving beer truck probably sounded cooler in his head.

Food Truck Explodes In Middle Of Suburbs, Damages 20 Homes

Food-Truck-Accident

Minnesota-based food truck Motley Crews exploded over the weekend. No, the food truck boom hasn’t found a second wind. We mean literally exploded. The food truck was parked in a Lakeville neighborhood when it blew up late Friday evening.

According to witnesses, the incident sounded “like a bomb.” Although nearly two dozen homes were damaged in the explosion, luckily no one was hurt. Police say the explosion was more than likely caused by a propane leak. While it’s still under investigation, a GoFundMe has launched in an effort to help the families affected by the damage.

Motley Crews is known for their burgers, sandwiches and Heavy Metal theme.

Witnesses say the explosion could be heard within a six-mile radius. The truck has tweeted a thank you for all the thoughts and prayers regarding the incident.

Truckload of French Fries Crashes Along Highway, Causes Ketchup Puns

Fries-Truck-Spill

A 53-foot tractor trailer rolled over Saturday night in Richmond, Maine, and spilled boxes of french fries all over I-295. The trailer was full of the fries and had to be completely removed before the truck could be towed away.

Charles Ohalloran, the 28-year-old driver of the truck, was distracted by a water bottle, reports WCSH6. He swerved and went off the road, causing the truck to roll over the grass and into the trees paralleling the freeway. The police arrived at the scene just as Ohalloran was climbing out.

Bowdinham and Richmond firefighters responding to the accident had to make an assembly line to remove each 36-pound fry box.

It should be mentioned that a similar accident near the crash site had occurred earlier in the year with a trailer full of potatoes. Maybe someone should just set up a ketchup stand along the freeway. We’re sure they’ll make a killing.

Sorry, we just had to get that ketchup one in.

Giada De Laurentiis Slices Open Finger on Live Television

giade-cuts-finger

Italian eats extraordinaire and all-out babe Giada De Laurentiis managed to slice open her finger during a live taping for Food Network’s annual Thankgiving special. The Julia Child moment occurred as De Laurentiis was cutting up a just-baked turkey roll and the knife slipped from her fingers.

“I guess I just sliced through my finger at the same time,” she told Today. “I think everybody kind of freaked out. We don’t do live television usually on Food Network. These things usually just get hidden.”

Working alongside Ina Garten, Bobby Flay and Alton Brown, De Laurentiis became pale and whispered to Ina that she’d cut herself badly, according to Radar. The show cut to commercial and when it returned, Brown told the audience that De Laurentis was getting medical attention. Of course, Brown couldn’t help but poke a little fun via Twitter.

Luckily, De Laurentiis was back on set 15 minutes later, thickly bandaged finger and all. She later posted before-and-after images of the bloody mishap on Instagram.

Crisis avoided.
