A series of striking images and footage is the greatest descriptor for an event which took place during the early morning hours on Monday, December 7th.

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.
