Crash on I-90 Involves Missiles
I feel with a headline like this, I should clarify right away: nobody was injured in this "unique" crash, if you will.
Having lived in Spokane, Washington for four years, I still see news stories from up north (as Spokane is just a rocks throw from the state line) and this story made me take a few looks. Yes, you're reading the headline right: a truck crashed on Interstate 90 up north and it was carrying...missiles. Sixteen missiles to be exact, each weighing about 2,000 pounds.
The truck drove into the hazmat contaminant area thinking that it was an on-ramp which resulted in a pretty big crash over a snowbank. Luckily, no other vehicles were involved. The crash did however, shut down the interstate for several miles. This shutdown lasted for hours, because officials needed to make sure that the scene was safe for other cars to proceed. Nothing like casually driving past crashed missiles that belong to the Department of Defense, right? The driver was cited for inattentive driving and wasn't harmed.
