Onion Spill Clogs St. Louis Roadways
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The morning commute in St. Louis is sometimes bad enough to cry about. An incident Thursday may have literally left drivers in tears.
A truck lost a load of onions on Interstate 55 near downtown St. Louis Thursday morning, near the intersection of I-55 and Interstate 44. KMOX Radio reports the incident caused a significant backup on both interstates.
Crews cleared the onions to the shoulder, then a street sweeper cleaned the juice left over from the hundreds of onions that splattered the pavement and were run over by vehicles.
