Traffic was backed up for hours in eastern North Carolina after a sewage truck spilled the load it was carrying onto the highway. A malfunction on the truck caused it to release a load of human waste that required several hours to clean up. According to the police report, the vehicle was heading eastbound when the truck accident took place. After the waste spilled, two more cars collided because the spillage created a slippery surface. At this time, it is uncertain whether any injuries were reported as a result.
News sources say that the human waste was being transported from a sewage plant to another company to be sold and used as fertilizer. Truck accidents can lead to devastating injuries and financial setbacks.
