Crack team scrambles to clean up egg yolk spill on Italian highway

Humpty Dumpty’s nightmare played out on a highway in Italy on Wednesday, when several industrial containers had a great fall and spilled egg yolk everywhere at the scene of a traffic accident.

Eight trucks collided in the crash near the northern city of Parma and one driver suffered a minor injury, the Gazetta di Parma reports.

Everyone else escaped the incident without injury, but video shows the yolk was on them because one of the trucks was carrying a shipment of liquid egg.

The roadway was closed for more than five hours while a crack team cleaned up the spilled yolk, which poured out of several steel containers scattered around the scene.
