On Wednesday, October 14th, an unusual semi-truck accident occurred while it was traveling down the eastern lanes of Interstate 4 within Orlando. The truck was hauling an enormous load of chicken eggs, all of them packed inside of cardboard containers. Usually, this is enough to keep the eggs safe as they jostle in the back of vehicles, and the eggs arrive where they are intended intact and ready to be sold. The packaging, however, is not meant to withstand unusual stress, and this is exactly what it was subjected to on the mid-October day, while the semi-truck was driving down the extremely busy Interstate 4 within the limits of the City of Orlando.
Pictures released by the Florida Highway Patrol spoke louder than any of the alarmed commentary issued by news agencies regarding a semi-truck accident that took place within Orange County during the evening of Wednesday, July 10th. The images, captured using cameras owned by the Florida Department of Transportation, showed the middle portion of what was likely a harrowing experience through and through. We can see, through the thickening gloom, a line of cars backed up along State Road 528. At the front of this line, causing the lengthy delays, is a semi truck.
UPDATE: We recently reported on a horrific crash that took place along I-75, close to Gainesville, on January 3rd. In this accident, two tractor-trailers as well as several other vehicles were involved in a pileup that turned into a fiery explosion that left seven people, including five children, dead. Updates to the story informed the public that the children were all traveling inside of the same van and were being taken as part of a church trip from Louisiana to Walt Disney World.
