A Disgusting Pig-Related Traffic Tie-Up

While looking at the past week or so of pig news (via a Google News search) I found several media accounts of a traffic accident in Chicago on July 1st that shut down the Edens Expressway for seven hours. According to the AP (here via Forbes), Hassan Ware was driving too fast for conditions, flipping his truck and spilling pig ears, pig feet and grease all over the roadway. This greasy mess was hard to clean up--the transportation workers used sand, foam, and rock salt to make the road safe for travel. Yuck.

Today's image of live hogs being transported (not parts, thankfully) comes from Alison V. Smith of the Dallas Morning News.
