Spilled greasy pig parts all over the highway
A busy section of highway had to be closed for seven
hours after a truck tipped over and spilled pig ears, feet and grease all over
the road, creating slippery conditions on Chicago roads.
A sudden shift in the truck's load caused it to tip
onto its side near an entrance ramp in Skokie, according to Illinois Department
of Transportation spokesman Mike Claffey. No injuries have been reported.
Transportation department workers used sand to absorb the grease. They also
sprayed a foam usually used in hazardous materials situations and spread rock
salt to provide more traction.
