ATLANTA (AP) -- A truck overturned in metro Atlanta, spilling tons of hams onto an interstate ramp.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the truck was hauling 40,000 pounds of hams Thursday around 4 a.m. when it overturned, spilling its cargo south of Atlanta. Authorities were working early Thursday to clear the ramp from Old National Highway to Interstate 85 southbound after the crash.
The cab of the truck was destroyed in the crash, which also caused a diesel fuel spill.
Truck driver, Rigo Vargas, said he was hauling the hams to Texas when he wrecked. He said he banged his head against the door when the rig flipped over, but wasn't seriously hurt.
